Next Generation Leaders Day 

When it comes to the development and design of our industry, the World Tourism Forum Lucerne prioritizes the integration of all generations. This includes a strong focus on the young people who have already started their careers within the industry. 

These young employees with high career potential – the Next Generation Leaders – will be given the chance to accompany their CEOs in order to exchange ideas and discuss the challenges of the future with leaders in the tourism industry. 

We strongly believe in the concepts of incentives and mentorship. Those CEOs and managers who actively encourage their successors contribute considerably to the sustainable and successful development of our industry.

WINNER OF the next generation leaders Day 2017



The people I met, the insights shared and the overall 360 view on tourism were only some of the highlights of my experience. The Forum was conducted in a manner that made sure that discussions and presentations were relevant thus actionable in future.
I look forward to further engagements with the Forum and can only hope more people will share in this experience in future.
