The second World Tourism Forum Lucerne – dedicated to the topic “Sustainability in tourism: Challenges, pathways and intelligent business models” and attended by 230 participants from around the world – drew to a close at the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne. Besides a series of keynote addresses, the Forum centred on numerous interactive workshops, breakout sessions and a World Café, not to mention networking events at the highest level held throughout the three days. “We saw that it is essential for all stakeholders to work together if we’re going to make any decisive progress in the areas of sustainability and talent management”, concludes Martin Barth, General Manager of World Tourism Forum Lucerne. The event attracted 230 decision-makers from 30 countries to Lucerne, clearly surpassing the number and the importance of participants of the first event in 2009.
