Description

Donegal County Council in association with Donegal Tourism CLG are pleased to invite you to register for the next Donegal Marine Tourism Conference, which will take place on 5th and 6th September 2019. The venue will be the Redcastle Hotel and Spa, Inishowen, County Donegal. The theme of this conference is 'Connecting our Coastline - A Transnational Approach to Sustainable Marine and Coastal Tourism'.

This conference will take place over two days this year and will combine both keynote speakers and workshops. The conference will include keynote speakers from the Marine Institute discussing the new 'Go Atlantic Blue' initiative from AORA (Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance) and research on coastal and marine tourism from SEMRU (Socio-economic Marine Research Unit).

There will be an update from Fáilte Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way and other initiatives, a local business case study, a presentation on the development of official Blueways including an introduction to the new development guide and accreditation scheme, sustainable marine tourism development, new marine technologies, funding opportunities, digital marketing tips, trends and strategy, eco-tourism, marine themed project updates and much more.

The conference will include presentation of EU funded projects in particular the eco-boat building element of the CAPITEN project funded under the Atlantic Area Programme for Europe. There will be a cross-border and transnational approach to the conference to highlight the challenges and opportunities in preparation for Brexit.

Practical workshops will ensure attendees can take away some great tips and advice to put into practical use in their own business or regions. There will be lots of useful information stands on the day. Q&A sessions will take place offering attendees the opportunity to discuss marine tourism topics with the expert panel of guest speakers. This is a free event, lunch and refreshments will be included on both days.

The Donegal Marine Tourism Conference 2019 is open to everyone with an interest in marine tourism opportunities and development of County Donegal as a marine tourism destination of excellence.
