Message from the Mayor of Sant Julià de Lòria

Hon. Mr. Josep Miquel Vila

Mayor of Sant Julià de Lòria

The 9th edition of the Snow and Mountain Tourism World Congress will be the occasion to open Sant Julià de Lòria to speakers, professional assistants, general spectators and, specially, to mountainlikers, whose experiences in the mountain are known by the network. It will be a unique opportunity to discuss the privileged relationship between the mountain and the practice of adventure sports.

The title, Sport and Adventure – a promising combination for mountain destinations – refers to the main objective of the congress. Extend an offer that is not necessarily linked to the snow period. This is where it is necessary to implicate the practice of the most traditional winter sports with new resources that arise in the different mountain resorts.

The diverse adventure sports that are increasing the limits of experience open up new topics for discussion, as the commercial look or the security logistics.

In addition to the facilities of Centre cultural i de congressos lauredià and the experience on the range of adventure, sport and the practice of cross-country skiing in Naturlandia, Sant Julià de Lòria is contributing the expert work from 2 - 4 March.

Welcome to the 9th Snow and Mountain Tourism World Congress organized by the World Tourism Organization, Govern and the seven Andorran parishes. We are confident that it is going to be a rewarding experience and that amongst all we will do a good work.

 

Hon. Mr. Josep Miquel Vila

Mayor of Sant Julià de Lòria
