Conference tourism not so vulnerable to crises

Antonis Kakas, vice-chancellor of the University of Cyprus, believes that Cyprus should make itself a more attractive venue for international conferences because these are more immune to economic crises than classic package tourism. Writing in the right-wing liberal daily Politis he says: "Clearly at a time of fierce competition and insecurity new, robust strategies for the future should be developed and alternatives found to tackle the negative consequences for the tourism industry. Cooperation in the field of conference tourism could make an important contribution here. In other countries this sector is already well developed. Therefore it is important for Cyprus to present itself as a venue for high-quality conference tourism. Conference tourism is generally considered to be less crisis-prone than leisure tourism. Hence it has so far not been so affected by the global crisis."
