I am invited to deliver a keynote speech on “Resilience of Mountain Systems” at The Mountain Business Summit in Tarbes, France, on June 11th 2019.
“Taking place at the heart of the Pyrenees, Mountain Business Summit assembles all key players from the mountain industry. For 2 days, professionals will be able to share and promote their expertise with local and international investors and decision-makers though preplanned one-to-one meetings. The original format of this global event facilitates networking opportunities between the attendees who get to identify each other weeks prior to the event.” (MBS)
Tentative program of the 11th of June, morning:
LEARN. MEET. GET INSPIRED.
The first day of MBS will provide tons of insights from our expert talks. The different sessions will focus on strategic and critical topics, including renewable energy and hydroelectricity, biking as a highly valuable asset for tourism development, and the innovation race to boost mountain appeal.
