Agritravel & Slow Travel Expo – Fiera dei Territori is back, the three days dedicated to slow and sustainable tourism scheduled from 17 to 19 September at the Bergamo Fair.
Now in its 7th edition, the event is confirmed as a reference point for operators in the sector and for a public – local, national and international – looking for a way to travel in the name of quality of life, sustainability and environment. From walks to trekking, from cycle tourism to mountain and hill itineraries, to waterways, to spiritual and folklore routes. These are some of the many destinations that will be discussed at the event organized by Ente Fiera Promoberg and supported by various partners including Enit – National Tourism Agency and Bergamo Chamber of Commerce.
Focus on the mountain
Great attention is paid to the mountains, understood as a treasure trove of nature, culture and food and wine.
A destination to be enhanced also in view of the 2021/2022 winter season and the Milan-Cortina 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, with the important repercussions in terms of tourism, economic and visibility that an event of global resonance like this brings with it.
The mountains will also be the protagonist of a novelty of the 2021 edition of Agritravel & Slow Travel Expo. In fact, alongside the stands, debates, meetings and workshops there will also be a large Mountain Village, an experiential area set up in the outdoor spaces of the exhibition center, which hosts performances by professional athletes.
The space will also offer visitors the opportunity to try their hand at a large cross-country ski track, the biathlon polygon, bumps and parabolic curves for bicycles, skateboards and rollers, mountain-bike circuit and Nordic walking path.
“Vivere la Montagna – Enjoy the Mountains” is the title of the program of events dedicated to the mountains and tourism at high altitudes, the protagonist of the opening day. On 17 September from 4 to 7 pm in the internal meeting area, meetings, presentations, debates, exhibitions and workshops will involve journalists, testimonials, athletes, experts and mountain operators.
From 27 to 29 September Agritravel & Slow Travel Expo will then move online with a second online stage reserved for operators in the tourism sector: associations, tour operators and tour organizers mainly from Italy, but also from other European and non-European countries.
