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.
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!
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.

Alvaro Cedeño Molinari
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.
Overtourism and Tourismphobia:
The end of empathy in the travel industry?
Dr. Milano (PhD) is one of the world's top researchers of overtourism and tourismphobia. An Italian anthropologist with a background in economics and over ten years of academic and industry experience, he is a consultant in international tourism development, a lecturer, and the Director of the Master’s program in Sustainable Tourism Destinations and Regional Tourism Planning at the Ostelea School of Hospitality and Tourism – University of Lleida (Barcelona, Spain). He has published many academic articles and is also co-editor of the book Overtourism: Excesses, Discontents and Measures in Travel and Tourism, to be published in 2019 (CABI:London).
Working with a Purpose:
The power of travel to change lives
Raised in the US and based in Chile for over 20 years, Guidera is the director of the Portillo Ski Resort and one of the founders of the casually luxurious Tierra Hotels in Chile (Atacama, Chiloe and Patagonia – recently named #1 hotel in Latin America by Travel & Leisure). She is a passionate tourism expert who serves on the Advisory Board of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World and the president of Make-A-Wish Chile. Guidera earned her MBA from Harvard Business School. Her professional background includes 11 years working at the Walt Disney Company, another experience that helped guide her career and life goals to provide her guests and herself with real happiness.
Leadership in the Community:
How travel industry leaders can impact the communities they work in?
After relocating from her native Belgium to work in a family tourism business in Costa Rica, Deweer got involved in volunteering. She became concerned with the economic development overshadowing poverty and social exclusion and decided to work to change this reality. She is the founder of CEPIA, an award-winning non-profit organization that serves over 800 children and teenagers in Costa Rica and a fellow at the Central America Leadership Initiative of the Aspen Institute (CO). Deweer will talk about her vision of leadership in this changing world and how business leaders can impact the communities where they work and travel.
The Future of Tourism:
Lessons learned from 20 years in Sustainable Tourism
Co-founder and president of the Cayuga Collection of Sustainable Luxury Hotels and Lodges, German national Hans Pfister is a global thought leader on sustainable hospitality, with a strong passion for customer service and marketing. Pfister won the 2018 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards in the “People” Category, granted by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) – a great honor, as 200 applications were considered. He will lead the discussion on the future of tourism based on the lessons learned from 20 years of expertise in sustainable tourism and ecotourism in Europe, Asia and the Americas. He strongly believes in walking the talk when it comes to sustainability.
