DestiMED PLUS Project Final Event

This DestiMED Plus project hybrid event will take place in Cavour Convention Hall in Rome and online, on the 20th and 21st of June.


The event is organised by Regione Lazio, CPMR Intermediterranean Commission and CPMR Islands Commission with the aim of celebrating the conclusion of the DestiMED Plus project. This two-day event will give the possibility to discuss the main results and achievements reached by the project in almost three years of work. It will be organised in a participatory way in order to involve the main actors of the project with open discussions and presentations. The event will also include project partnership and MEET Network meetings (on the 20th of June in the afternoon), as well as the discussion of the implementation and governance of the Mediterranean Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories by BEST MED and DestiMED Plus projects (on the 21st of June). Finally, another important highlight will be the presentation of the Mediterranean Ecotourism Consortium (MEC) and its policy roadmap.


The two-day event will be directed to public and private tourism authorities, especially high-level participants from world and European tourism organizations and institutions. Do not forget to register to the online open event here!

The meeting in the afternoon on June 20th will be a restricted event that targets DestiMED Plus project’s partners and MEET Network members instead.
