#DTTTGlobal is just around the corner and we are super excited to be travelling to Finland with a host of really great speakers from our host city and across the globe, bringing different perspectives from a range of DMOs and industry partners. #DTTTGlobal aims to challenge, share and inspire, discussing where the travel industry finds itself today, where it’s headed and what is needed for DMOs to achieve success in the future. 

 

We also explore the complicated landscape of sustainability, learning from experiences and finding inspiration in the challenges and successes of DMOs and industry experts. 

 

With this in mind, it really matters to us to show our commitment to sustainability in everything we do, especially through our events. While we know there are of course challenges when travel is involved, here are a few ways we are ensuring #DTTTGlobal 2019 is as sustainable as possible.

 

The city of Helsinki aims to be the most functional city in the world and is committed to offering more sustainable lifestyles for each and every resident. The goal is to do everything a little better, responsibly and sustainably all the time – as well as to be carbon neutral by 2035. This is one of the many reasons we are proud to present Helsinki & Espoo as our host city for #DTTTGlobal.

 

Together with Helsinki Marketing and Espoo Marketing, #DTTTGlobal will be as sustainable as possible.
