From December 13 to 15th, Tourbit partners has been very pleased to meet each other again, in Paris this time, hosted by the Welcome City Lab of Paris&Co.

This second Steering Committee Meeting has been the opportunity to talk about next impacting actions to support digitalization of tourism SMEs, especially to set up the last arrangements for the Digital Acceleration Programme that will start very soon in January.

We also discussed a fundamental topic From intention to action: tourism, digitalization & sustainability and each Tourbit partner presented initiatives from its country that links tourism with sustainability and digitalization.

Beside the internal meetings, we had the opportunity to discover the European project The Good Manager about Digital sobriety and accessibility at the service of innovation a best practice in terms of digital learning that, for sure, will be very useful for Tourbit project and the digitalization of tourism SMEs.
