“MARKETPLACE OF IDEAS”
The “Marketplace of Ideas” is an opportunity for innovative, out-of-the-box, or challenging initiatives related with the internationalization of rural tourism from Europe and the rest of the world to showcase their experience. We look for consolidated examples that work in reality, but do not exclude ongoing projects if they open new perspectives. Introduce your case online HERE or use the WORD template - we will contact you for technical details.
Cases exposed at this Marketplace of Ideas enjoy the reduced Congress Fee for EuroGites members. They shall present their experience in the foyer of the conference with a 1x2 mts poster displays free of cost.
A contest to be voted by the congress participants will select the three cases they consider most inspiring. The winners will be presented during the Conclusions of the congress, and receive refund of their registration fee.
A selection of four comprehensive cases related to the Panels 1-4 will be included in the respective plenary sessions. These selected cases will be invited “all cost paid”, but can NOT participate in the contest. See special early deadline below!
Electronic-only presentation of cases (i.e. without physical exposition with a panel at the Marketplace of Ideas) is possible, following a standard template (PowerPoint or PDF) that assures a common structure and allows for comparing all cases along the same criteria. Such cases will be included in the conference documentation, but cannot participate in the contest.
o 15th-July-2018 for cases to be considered for plenary
o 21st-September-2018 for the rest (poster displays, or only electronic)
