University of Ioannina (Greece) 11th congress women’s entrepreneurship of Adriatic and Ionian area

Forum AIC is pleased to announce that the 11th Congress Women’s Entrepreneurship of Adriatic and Ionian Area will be held in Arta, Greece on 16th-18th October 2019 at the Arta Chamber of Commerce.

The Congress organized by the Forum of the Adriatic and Ionian Chambers of Commerce and Arta Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Ioannina University (Uniadrion member) and Split Chamber of the Economy (Forum AIC member). It aims to provide a cross-regional perspective on the best practices and prevalent challenges in scaling up women’s economic empowerment and entrepreneurial activities, in the field of alternative tourism in the Adriatic and Ionian Macroregion.

The event brings together a vast community of actors from across the Adriatic and Ionian area: experts, institutional representatives, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders, all of whom are devoted to the development of women’s entrepreneurship.

Although tourism is already one of the fastest-growing economic activities in the Adriatic- Ionian Region the full potential of the Region is not yet exploited in a sustainable and responsible way (as it states in the EUSAIR Action Plan, Pillar 4 – Topic 1 Diversified tourism offer). The congress will focus on innovation aspects of women’s entrepreneurship, alternative and potentially sustainable forms of tourism and related opportunities.

This edition will continue the tradition of offering state-of-the-art presentations, interactive workshops, and networking sessions. On the 16th and 17th different sessions and workshops will be organized, while on the 18th the Extraordinary Assembly of Forum AIC will be held.
