Our webinar on 8/31/2020 went off successfully with over 600 live attendees from 57 countries.
Key outcomes of the presentations and discussions were:
Be open to new technologies and opportunities through digitization
Develop new fields, e.g. tour ideas for locals
Increased cooperation between guides
Thank you very much for the numerous participation and the strong interest in the topic “Future for tour guides/foreign guides”.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to Alushca Ritchie from the World Association and Maren Richter from the German Tourist Guide Association for their reports on activities of the associations in the past months and their commitment especially in these difficult times of the pandemic.
Special thanks also go to our panelists and tourism experts Burghart Lell (Avalon Waterways) and Dieter Hardt-Stremayr (Graz Tourism) for their presentations and assessment of the situation as well as the future of our industry.

It is important to us that we guides worldwide stay in contact, exchange ideas and inform each other. Motivating each other is especially important in these times. The participation and the “rewatch” of this webinar are again free of charge for you. Even if we do not calculate our own working time, we still incur costs for online technology (Zoom). If you would like to support us with a donation, we are grateful for any amount.
We look forward to next virtual meetings!
All the best and stay healthy.
