ArtReefs - Blue Innovation Lab
Maritime mood in November
Surely, you love the sea and are dreaming of burying your fingers into the sand of the seaside. And, even if the dream vacation is three seasons away, this month we will get you into the maritime mood with
“ArtReefs – Blue Innovation Lab”,
organized by National tourism cluster “Bulgarian Guide”.
The event will take place on 24th November 2017, starting from 9:30 at Hotel Anel, Sofia.
- What hides behind the “blue” idea?
The aim of the Laboratory, as a part of the ArtReefs project, is to promote the idea of the artificial reefs deployment and utilization, to explore the particularities of the local region for the purpose of developing tourism packages around the reefs, to identify opportunities for improving the environment and creating jobs in the coastal zones of the Mediterranean and Black Sea.
- Get on board, everybody!
And because the sea is a pleasure, but also a responsibility, the event will be attended by stakeholders from the tourism sector and the related industries, willing to adapt and offer tourist packages, based on artificial reefs, as well as representatives of public and educational institutions, research institutions and associations, related to the ecology, fishery and marine sports.
