The members of the delegations discussed the opportunities in e-tourism.
A twin town meeting took place in Săcueni from June 8 to 11. Representatives from Algyő, Edelény, Gyermely, Héhalom, Mucsony (Hungary), Kamocsai, and Kürti (Slovakia) participated alongside the host Săcueni. Among the near four hundred representatives from the eight municipalities, were those who greeted each other as old friends, but new friendships were also forged during the enjoyable joint programs.
The four-day meetings program introduced the participating delegations and interested parties to the segment of tourism that takes place in the digital space. This is because in today’s world, most travel planning happens online, using smart devices. Travelers often value the ability to compare prices and accommodations on online lodging booking platforms and the fact that they don’t need to establish direct contact with the accommodation provider. Digitization is a constant presence in the tourism industry, and the changing customer demands of the past two and a half years have only accelerated this process. A significant portion of the sector, at least the rapidly awakening part, made significant leaps in development during this time, and the twin town meeting revolved around the aspects of digitization and tourism.
