The 1st International Conference on Religious Tourism (ICORET) will take place between October 19-21, 2006, in Nicosia, Cyprus
It is anticipated that the industry servicing the sector worldwide and especially in Europe and the Mediterranean region, such as Travel Agents, Destination Management Companies, industry analysts and the church body itself will participate.
Aiming to tap into what is part of a US$18 billion industry and representing part of the 25% of the meetings industry in the US alone, the conference will formally instigate an initiative of elevating the status of religious tourism in Cyprus and the nearby region.
In Europe it will cover both the demand and supply perspective of religious tourism and will provide networking opportunities to interested parties. The conference will also give the opportunity to organizations involved in religious tourism, as well as to newcomers to the field to obtain insight and knowledge on religious tourism issues, practices and trends.
