The LAB is a spin-off of the Heritage, Tourism and Hospitality, International Conference (HTHIC) which is dedicated to the question “How can tourism destinations succeed in attracting visitors while simultaneously engaging all stakeholders in the preservation of natural and cultural heritage?”

Michele Rumiz will speak about “Slow Food Travel – ratio and practice to bridge tourism and high-quality and sustainable food production benefiting local communities”.

Eckart Mandler will speak about “Travelling to the roots of good taste as an opportunity for regions away from the tourist stream – Slow Food and Slow Travel as a successful model for Carinthia”.
