Baltic Sea Tourism Forum | Register by 20 May 2024

The 16th Baltic Sea Tourism Forum will take place in Oulu, Finland on 4-5 June 2024. This year's themes include cultural and culinary tourism, cycling and coastal tourism. The event offers keynotes, case examples from the BSR, among them the BSR Cultural Pearls project, networking opportunities, and the chance to explore the city of Oulu.

Baltic Sea Tourism Forum (BSTF) is the annual forum for EUSBSR Policy Area Tourism since 2008. This forum aims to promote dialogue, consensus building and a shared vision of the key challenges of tourism development around the Baltic Sea. BSTF is closely linked to the implementation process of Policy Area Tourism. It contributes strongly to the aims of the macro-regional strategy, the revised action plan and the defined actions adopted by the European Commission like EU Pathway to Tourism. BSTF attracts key tourism stakeholders from BSR, like DMO representatives, regional authorities, local municipalities and pan-Baltic organisations.

BSTF2024 is arranged by EUSBSR PA Tourism coordinators: Council of Oulu Region (FI) and Pomorskie Tourist Board (PL) with guests and speakers from all EUSBSR countries and beyond. BSTF2024 is supported by: Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland, City of Oulu, Visit Finland, Visit Oulu and Interreg Baltic Sea Region.
