#INSTO2019

The Global INSTO Meetings offered already established observatories as well as interested destinations and other tourism stakeholders the opportunity to exchange experiences, learn about best practices and advance together in their monitoring efforts at the local level. To further advance the dialogues among all participants, the 2019 Meeting included another Mentoring Breakfast, presentations from destinations showcasing their specific cases, different thematic discussions as keynotes with examples of specific monitoring processes and research results.

Sustainable Tourism Observatories continue to be established all around the world, serving as instruments for improved evidence generation at the destination level.
