G20s in Bibione
The first summit on Italian beaches in Bibione
What is the future of "the sea" as a product?  This will be discussed in Bibione from 5th to 7th September 2018 during the G20 summit on Italian beaches: three days of events and meetings where 20 coastal resorts from 7 Italian regions have been invited to draw up guidelines for the strategic development of coastal tourism in Italy.
Italy is surrounded by sea, 13% of local authorities are coastal areas that generate 53% of tourist presences nationally; hence the idea to call all the "players" of coastal tourism.  At the Bibione summit, original in its genre, representatives from coastal resorts from 7 regions will take part: Veneto (Bibione, Cavallino Treporto, Jesolo, Caorle and Chioggia), Friuli Venezia Giulia (Lignano Sabbiadoro and Grado), Emilia Romagna (Rimini, Riccione, Cesenatico,  Bellaria-Igea Marina, Comacchio, Cervia and Cattolica), Campania Sorrento, Forio and Ischia), Puglia (Vieste), Tuscany (Castiglione della Pescaia) and Sardinia (Arzachena).  Important absences are Sicily and Calabria.

How were the 20 participants of the G20 chosen?  Based on the influx of tourists numbers in 2016 when these 20 destinations registered over 60 million tourist presences, about 15% of the total national presences.
Who will the speakers be?  Over the three days mayors, regional authority members, technicians, scholars, operators from the sector and decision-makers, will meet to discuss a series of common themes: for example, the sustainability of the beaches, infrastructure, tourist products, public services, refuse collection, safety, sanitation, and also access, finance and resources.  Both the present and the future will be discussed.  The convention will have two open plenary sessions (subscription is free and is available on-line) and more technical meetings "behind closed doors" aimed at operators.  www.g20s.it
