Second Multiplier
Event in Crete

The Cretatour partner Destination Management held a second event to promote the Ariadne Thread of Tourism Project. The heart of the event was the exposition of the objectives and purposes of the project and the presentation of the products such as the sector reports, the online course and the manual, currently under development. Participants were able to ask their questions and take part in the debate on the evolution of the tourism sector from the pandemic crisis to today.

Hosts Multiplier Event
to Promote "Ariadne’s Thread of Tourism" Project

Palermo, Italy – The Italian Federation of Travel and Tourism Agencies (FIAVET) hosted a successful Multiplier Event on February 24th, showcasing the ongoing Erasmus+ project titled “Ariadne’s Thread of Tourism”. The event, held at the Hotel Saracen Sands Hotel & Congress Center, attracted a substantial audience primarily composed of Italian travel agency professionals.

With a remarkable turnout, comprising approximately 90% of Italian travel agency workers, the event demonstrated a keen interest in the project. Attendees were treated to an informative video, meticulously crafted by FIAVET, elucidating the project’s intricacies.

Throughout the event, significant attention was directed towards the sector report on Italy, a pivotal aspect of the project, alongside an exploration of qualitative survey results. Discussions encompassed the internal dynamics of travel agencies and the adversities faced amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

The engagement of participants underscored the challenges endured during this unprecedented period, despite signs of recovery since 2022.

A Project Transnational Meeting in Crete

On October 4, 2023, the second trasnational project meeting was held at the beautiful offices of the Cretan partner Cretatour. The meeting took place during
the whole day and allowed the project partners to discuss the development,
almost feared, of the third result and the fulfillment of the next months that will
see the realization of the e-platformlearning and handbook for tourism enterprises.

The following day, some members of the consortium had the opportunity to discuss with some small local operators the development of the tourism sector, its positive and negative effects on local economies and communities. Finally we could also visit the historic buildings that characterize the island of Crete.
