REMOTE BY REMOTERS


 

The event was and is a success, undoubtedly.  Indeed, we’ve made connections that are more than business contacts. We’ve made friends and we are thrilled to be able to work with friends.

Gabriel Saragovia
Rio Perdido Hotel - Costa Rica

 

A perfect mix of work, learning, networking and fun.  Remote did such a great job to make a most memorable experience and built such great relationships that we both know is the best way to sell Latin America to our clients!

Jill Taylor
Jet Set Travel - USA

Great to have european and american buyers, it makes it far more valuable. Most of the buyers were known to me but it was a great opportunnity  to secure the relationship and definitely we do have business coming our way.

Petit Marie-Hélène Miribel
Sol y Luna Relais & Chateaux – Peru

 

It was also great to have so many of the owners there to share their passion for their product and be able to elaborate on any aspect of their offering.

Empathy in Tourism:
The role of travelers to promote peace

 Former Costa Rican Ambassador to the World Trade Organization (WTO), Molinari is a specialist in Peace Studies and Conflict Transformation, bioliteracy and regenerative development. He'll be there to share his thoughts on how the travel industry can do its part to go beyond some necessary sustainable practices, focusing on the well-being of all the world's citizens. “Peace is the ability to transform conflict creatively and empathically. And tourism has an important role in promoting peace through respect to human cultural diversity and nature, as Costa Rica has proven to the world,” Molinari says.
