River and land: the tourism new horizons
A 5th edition, 10 years of existence... and an entry into a new decade!
For its 5th edition, the National Conference on River Tourism will stop over in Auxerre on February 5th and 6th 2020. It is an opportunity to celebrate 10 years of this event, which has become an unmissable event for river tourism players, but also and above all to open up to the new decade 2020-2030. As highlights of these meetings, Voies navigables de France offers 3 round tables to build the river tourism of tomorrow, between river and land: always more attentive to the expectations of its customers, connected to the territories, open to new actors, and oriented towards sustainable growth.
