What is Accessible Travel & Tourism International Conference?

A first-of-a-kind in the world in terms of the comprehensive range of topics to be discussed, the conference aims to highlight the legislations, policies and requirements of tourists of determination, in addition to the challenges they face while travelling in relation to available infrastructures, transportation and communications means, education, medical tourism, banking services and qualified human resources capable of dealing with them, among other equally important related issues.
