CITYDNA AUTUMN CONFERENCE – TEL AVIV, OCT 19-22, 2022
Attention all passengers: This is a Call for Speakers! We are calling on all City Destinations Alliance members, partners, experts, lead thinkers & doers to join us in transit – on the way to transition or back to our starting point? Hold on tight, it will be a bumpy and challenging ride! We have almost (hopefully) passed the end station of the COVID express, but did we miss the Build Back Better connection? Instead, we are now facing new roadblocks and broken bridges with hyperinflation, global recession, war in Europe and rising geopolitical tensions. At the same time, we are navigating new hype curves of technology (are we all getting off in the Metaverse?) and searching for the right platform to embark on the high speed for the net zero journey. Mind the generational gap, as you make your plan – the GenZs and the Alphas may have a different destination in mind. Is this an era of change or a change of era? Are we stuck in transit or shifting towards transition?
With this Call for Speakers, City Destinations Alliance invites potential speakers to submit their proposals to join the “Tourism in Transit” conference, taking place in the non-stop city of Tel Aviv from Oct 19–22, 2022. We are looking for speakers to help us explore where tourism is heading, whether we as destinations got lost in transit or if we are on the right track towards meaningful transition for positive impact and contribution.
With “Tourism in Transit”, we want to ask questions like:
These and many more questions will be guiding our conversation in Tel Aviv. If these questions match your new initiative or latest research, or if you have even better questions to ask to city destination leaders in transit(ion), please submit your proposal to this call.
If you answer this call, you are excited to prepare for an interactive and co-creative format. We welcome any great ideas for formats or different approaches to presenting, sharing, and learning together. Please also note that the conference will be in English, no translation will be available.
We always look for quality content and topicality. We strive for diversity in gender, cultural background, in geography and more. We welcome and encourage leads and submissions from everyone. This also includes speakers of varying exposure and experience – the important thing is that you tap into the theme and have something to share.
Please submit your proposals and leads to CityDNA associates and conference designers, Group NAO before June 24, 2022: email@example.com
CityDNA and Group NAO reserve the right to select the best suited proposals regarding the theme of the conference! Expect to hear from us mid-July.
