TopHotel Tourism&Leisure Investment Conference

On the 26th and 27th of May 2016, at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel, Evensys organized the Top Hotel Tourism & Leisure Investment Conference 2016, an event dedicated to the hotel, tourism and hospitality industry in Romania.

Incoming Romania Association was well represented at this event, where two members of our association – Mircea Draghici (General Secretary) and Ovidiu Tudor (Vice President) were also part of the jury. They offered the organizers their expertise and consultancy in the field of incoming tourism.

Following the proposal of Incoming Romania Association, the initiators of this event accepted this year to change the name of one of the categories of the awards from The Best Incoming Agency to The Best Incoming Tour-Operator and to complete the judging criteria accordingly.

At the same time, a new category was introduced for this year awards – The Most Innovative Romanian Program for Incoming Tourism, where the most nominees were members of Incoming Romania Association (7 out of 10). The first and second place were awarded to two of our members: 4 X 4 Tours for Off Road Adventure Tours in Romania and TravelMaker for Two Castles in One Day.

Furthermore, one of the sessions of the conference, the one dedicated to tourism, was transformed in a debate/seminar about incoming travel to Romania – the destination management by the national local and public authorities and the cooperation between the tourism operators for creating an unforgettable experience for their visitors. During this seminar, the president of the Romanian National Authority for Tourism, Anca Nedea Pavel has presented a national management plan for regions integrated and correlated with local destinations.

At the evening awards gala, the representatives of Incoming Romania Association were asked to offer the awards to the winners of the The Most Innovative Program for Incoming Tourism.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Evensys, as the initiator and organizer of Top Hotel Tourism & Leisure Investment Conference, for their openness and cooperation with Incoming Romania Association. We are already looking forward to the next year event.
