The one and only conference in the region of South-East Europe that brings together tourism experts from all over the world, linking them with three most important sectors in tourism (private, public and academic) will be held in Belgrade for the 5th time in the period of 21st-23rd September 2012.
It was lack of practical knowledge and skilled students that gave a signal for establishing such an event that creates a strong platform of future leaders in tourism industry.
This year, EIAT brings two new sessions:
- Executive Hotelier Track – attended for hotel industry professionals, and
- Executive Destination Track – for those involved in destination management and rural tourism and created for NGO representatives, travel agencies and others from public and private sectors in this field.
