Next Generation Competition
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 – 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.
