Dear ISTO members and friends,


Ladies and Gentlemen,


For the first time, the 26th ISTO World Congress will be held in a Balkan Country which earned an important position in European Tourism, namely Croatia. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us in Zagreb from 18 to 21 October 2016.


This Congress will be a direct continuati

on of the previous edition, held in São Paulo, as it will be the outcome of the decisions initiated since: on the one hand to open the scope of actions of ISTO and secondly, to strengthen the Organisation to serve its members with a more dynamic vision of Social Tourism. This is an important challenge.  


During these days, when the General Meeting will be held but also sectorial or regional meetings and the thematic sessions of the Congress itself, we will try to discuss the link between inclusion and tourism and see how the one is a vector of development for the other.


But just like its forerunners,we also expect this conference to be a time of interesting exchanges, encounters and conviviality.


Whether you are ISTO member or not, tourism stakeholder, public authority, trade union or social organisation, university, … and most of all interested in social, solidarity and responsible tourism, we hope to see you in Zagreb, where you will also have the opportunity to discover the beautiful country Croatia!


ISTO President,

Jean Marc Mignon
