Travel and Tourism is the third largest industry in the world, significantly contributing to global economic growth and job creation, as well as encouraging cultural exchange and understanding.

The Resilience and Innovation Summit - organised by The Global Travel and Tourism Resilience Council, Travolution and Project Turizam, which has been set up by USAID to develop sustainable tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina - is set to be the premier international travel event in Southeast Europe for 2024, drawing global industry leaders from the Balkans, Caucasus, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and beyond. Taking place at Hotel Hills Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina on June 6 - 7, the summit is a platform for exchanging best practices and exploring business development and investment opportunities in the travel and tourism and its connected value chains in the region, with a special focus on Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The programme for the summit is segmented into two thematic days. The first day is dedicated to the theme of destination resilience, emphasising the critical need to understand and capitalise on global market trends, and adopt environmental, social, and governance imperatives to drive sustainable growth. The event will delve into methods to enhance the resilience and profitability of businesses, destinations and the global travel and tourism industry and its connected industries.

The second day is designed by Europe’s leading B2B travel tech and digital travel publication Travolution. It will shift focus to innovation in the tourism sector, engaging the tech sector of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Southeast Europe to foster entrepreneurship and explore innovative digital solutions for global tourism that may be scaled up and adopted by clients worldwide. The summit will also provide a distinguished platform for regional start-ups and businesses less than two years’ old looking to propel themselves to the next level, through an incubation-led pitching competition.
