Agritourism - 1st World Congress

Farm holidays, or agritourism for short, have been experiencing a significant increase in overnight stays for years. At the same time, it is more and more developing into a high-quality holiday offer. The striving for ever more demanding customers is to be seen quite sceptically. All too touristic structures endanger the originality of the farm and thus the credibility of the offer. In November, international experts will meet at Eurac Research to discuss these topics at the world's first Congress on Agritourism. The aim of the researchers was to clearly define agritourism and to distinguish it from other forms of tourism by clearly promoting it.

For the first time Eurac Research is promoting an international congress dedicated exclusively to the topic of agritourism. The aim of the initiative is to discuss the state-of-the-art and the future perspectives of this kind of rural tourism worldwide; to establish an agreed-upon definition of agritourism; to build a networking platform for scientists and practitioners; and finally, to promote agritourism unambiguously as a specific type of rural tourism.

The aim is to bring together all relevant regional actors, scientists and practitioners to discuss current challenges and developments. In addition to selected prominent and keynote speakers, the programme offers a variety of thematic sessions in the morning. Excursions to good practice examples in the region are an integral part of the congress.
