Georg Overs, managing director, Region Villach Tourismus GmbH, Austria

What is striking is that there are no new topics. For two years now attention has focused on digitalisation, overtourism and mobility. Perhaps there is nothing wrong with that. On the other hand, the specialist forums take too little interest in topics that concern many people, such as slow food and nutrition. Another thing that is noticeable is the brutal optimism, everyone is reporting good figures. If one looks at tourism in general, then what they are doing in Turkey is unbelievable. The human rights situation is alarming and very serious for the colleagues who are there. The people are so hospitable. What is also noticeable is that people are better prepared, there are fewer no shows, and the people we talk to are very organised. Networking is becoming more and more important, my impression is that people are more interested in making personal contact again.
