The area of the Baltic Sea generates millions of tourist arrivals in every summer season. Each year also brings new ideas for leisure seaside activities during the off-peak seasons.
There is a growing importance of the “Sea” as a component in the tourist marketing potential of the region, including MICE sector (meeting industry) as well as the cultural, culinary, health, sports or educational sectors. The Polish sea encourages to experiment, search for new opportunities and to use opportunities in unconventional marketing. To paraphrase Jack Trout – “Distinguish yourself or drown
During this year’s edition of the seminar “Marine Tourism” we will discuss the current trends and development challenges in the context of tourism in the coastal regions. The objective of the seminar is the development of and proposal of recommendations with regard to innovative tools for the development of tourism in these areas, with a particular emphasis on the concept of destination marketing. The panellists, with active audience participation, will search for relationships between changing needs of marine and cruise tourists and the competitors in the tourism market, including the example of the Scandinavian markets. Another important topic for discussion will be the break-through solutions in the creative industries, including culture and education. The modern museums, and other tradition-bound urban tourist attractions, are becoming contemporary beacons that attract thousands of tourists every year. They are distinguished by their interactive character as well as a rich variety of multimedia, and a new narrative quality, well suited to the profile and the needs of the current tourist generation. We are firmly convinced that the seminar is going to be an excellent opportunity for integrating the milieu of stakeholders involved in the issues of
a long-term and sustainable development of the areas under consideration.
The seminar is divided into two thematic blocks with the participation of a group of experts and practitioners. The first will be devoted to nautical and cruising tourism and the second will be a discussion on: “Cities- culture-education”.
