The heads of Europe’s national tourism boards convened in Tallinn on 24-26 May 2023 for the General Meeting of the European Travel Commission (ETC). This meeting, which was hosted by Visit Estonia, brought together almost 30 CEOs of national tourism authorities (NTOs) from across Europe and ETC associate members from private industry to discuss the state of play for Europe’s tourism sector.
The General Meeting elected Mr Miguel Sanz from Spain’s National Tourism Organization as ETC’s President for a three-year term. Miguel Sanz will work with ETC members on implementing the new ETC Strategy 2030, leading the organisation towards a more innovative, sustainable, green, and inclusive tourism sector in Europe post-Covid-19.
Miguel Sanz’s work will be supported by ETC’s Vice-Presidents. Martin Nydegger from Switzerland Tourism, Magda Antonioli from the Italian Government Tourism Board (ENIT) and newly re-elected Kristjan Staničić from the Croatian National Tourist Board (CNTB) will be coordinating ETC’s advocacy activities to create benefits for tourism in Europe.
