The new two-day conference will explore how destinations respond during turbulent times. The summit aims to provide its participants with practical knowledge and critical skills for preparing, mitigating, managing and recovering from tourism crises.

The conference will be held in Jerusalem, a city that over the past few decades has experienced numerous incidents of terror and conflict while maintaining its global position as an exciting tourist destination. Jerusalem is the bustling capital of Israel, a place where ancient meets modern. The city is a tourist destination that attracts millions of visitors every year, and in which tourism safety and security is part of the conversation.
