Three years in preparation and then it’s gone in a flash. For some reason all of us on the team felt the Munich conference just flew by.
Saudi Arabia recently opened their borders to the public for tourism - a huge step for the Kingdom. Aligned with King Salman’s Vision 2030 strategy to diversify the Kingdom’s economy away from oil. The introduction of the tourist visa will increase tourism revenue and expectations to boost international and domestic visits to 100 million a year by 2030.
The old English phrase “Out with the Old and in with the New”, in its literal sense means “Moving forward” and that was one of the big takeaways for me at our conference in Munich this year.
EuRA 2019 Munich has come and gone and we were delighted to welcome over 700 guests to the event from over 60 countries. It was a particular pleasure for me and the team and Board to welcome over 150 brand new delegates.
