From 13-16 June, 2018, the #EUROPETOUR partnership meets for the second to last time in the rural area of Waldviertel, upper Lower Austria, about one and a half hours drive from Vienna. The focus is on finishing the discussion about (the translations of) the Training Modules, as well as the Social Media Guidelines for Cultural Tourism in rural areas.
2018 highlights the final round of meetings for the EUROPETOUR partnership, starting with an experience of the German-Polish “Klosterland” network and our reception near the town of Mysliborz, hosted by Izabela Matusiak, of the community of Mysliborz, and Stefan Beier, head of the board of the transnational monastery network: www.klosterland.de

Marche region, in central Italy near the city of Ancona, has welcomed the EUROPETOUR partnership with a wealth of interesting, small-to-medium-sized enterprises which are offering products and services for cultural tourism in rural areas, and do so very smartly and successfully.
During 12-15 September, 2017, the final meeting of the EUROPETOUR partnership for the year 2017 will take place in and around the city of Ancona, Marche region, north-western Italy. The topics for discussion are manifold, focusing on the final elaboration of the EUROPETOUR training modules, as well as further work on the Social Media Guidelines for cultural tourism in rural areas.
During the last meeting of the EUROPETOUR team hosted by our project partner Pilar Bahamonde in Potes / Cantabria, we not only had the honour (and tasty pleasure!) of learning more about the actual Cantabrian cultural tourism products, services, and their marketing for cultural, religious heritage enthusiasts, and food lovers (see our latest blog post here), but also made good progress on the development of our training modules for cultural tourism stakeholders.
These modules are now further developed & translated into seven European languages, available for download soon.
As part of the EUROPETOUR meeting in Potes, Cantabria taking place from 7-11 June, 2017, Cantabrian experiences for cultural tourism in rural areas included three types of cultural tourism products, which were very well selected by our partner Pilar Bahamonde of SRECD in Spain. The aim was to showcase, and highlight, the quality of Cantabrian culinary products on the one hand, as well as emphasising the strong links to Cantabrian culture and cultural tourism on the other hand.
The town of Potes, located along the pilgrimage route of the “Camino Lebaniégo” in Cantabria, is a cultural tourism destination known for its importance as an ancient site of pilgrimage. For the second time in 2017, our partners will gather from all over Europe, Elena Paschinger of partner Kreativ Reisen Österreich even covering the first four days ahead of the meeting as a true pilgrim on the Camino del Norte – self-awareness life!
For the first time in 2017, the EUROPETOUR partnership has again gathered in the city of Veliko Tarnovo, north central Bulgaria. Hosted in conjunction with the city’s International Cultural Tourism Fair, as well as our Bulgarian partner’s INI-Novation first multiplier event, the meeting proved to be very successful indeed, putting the final touches to the collection of training modules, written as a result of the EUROPETOUR survey conducted in 2016.
Following a successful networking event at ITB Berlin this year, the EUROPETOUR family is proud to meet again in Bulgaria in early April 2017. The purpose of this meeting is to highlight and discuss progress made on the EUROPETOUR training modules for stakeholders in cultural tourism, including those attending from the Bulgarian region of Veliko Tarnovo.
