Sustainable Tourism: Global Challenges and Discovering Russia

Dear Friends! It is a great pleasure for us to inform you that the 4 th International Conference “Sustainable Tourism: Global Challenges and Russian Perspective” will take place from October 6 to October 8, 2021 at the Rosa Khutor mountain resort.

Sadly, the coronavirus pandemic is still with us, and restrictions on business gatherings have not been lifted, so like last year invitations to come to the Rosa Khutor Resort will only go out to experts and speakers, while all other attendees will be invited to follow the Conference proceedings via our interactive online platform.

Last year some 1200 people from all over the world watched the conference on our platform, and were able to actively participate in the proceedings, ask questions, vote, comment on the presentations and address the audience via video link. This year all of these functionalities remain in place and we will be happy to see our guests online in the hope that we will soon be able to see each other again in person.

The 4 th International Conference “Sustainable Tourism: Global Challenges and Russian Perspective” will focus on:

  • National Projects “Ecology” and “Tourism and Hospitality Industry”
  • Policies, regulations and industry institutions
  • Investments
  • Safety in active travel
  • Children’s tourism
  • Environmental protection
  • Consumer market
  • Professional training and certification of nature guides
