  • Insights from parallel industries
  • Social responsibility and sustainable travel

2. Give us your pitch in 100 words or less.

  • Anyone who is passionate about his or her area of expertise is invited to apply – that means buyers, accommodation providers, sellers, and others.
  • Your presentation will be 15 minutes and will take place in the afternoon of the first conference day.
  • The deadline for BEDx applications is 6 January 2017.
