Event description
What can we learn about sustainable tourism from Porto, Portgual?

About this event

Combined in-person and online hybrid event.

There’s much more Porto than port wine. So much more, in fact, that it is fast becoming one of Europes key tourist destinations, with visitors flocking to Portugals second city to bask in its stunning architecture and great parks, to eat famously good seafood and tap into its vibrant cultural scene. The historic is also a World Heritage Site - remember those?

But with an ever increasing influx of tourists, how does a city remain viable for those that live there and can a place have more visitors and protect the things it cherishes?

In this, this second seminar in a three-part series, we hear from Ricardo Valente, Porto’s Councillor for Economy, Tourism and Commerce, about Porto’s commitment to sustainability in their tourism offer. Ricardo’s contribution will be followed by responses from a panel of Liverpool City Region based experts, and audience Q&A.

About the series

Covid has presented us with an opportunity to recalibrate our thinking around tourism. Residents were becoming concerned about the impact that events and tourists were having on the Waterfront. There was an anxiety that more apartments were being turned over to Airbnb with local renters priced out of the city centre.

Join Engage Liverpool and Marketing Liverpool this November, to open-up a much-needed conversation about the future of our visitor economy.
