For the CEO of Eventiz and organizer of Net Managers, Mr. Frédéric Vanhoutte, Reunion is the ‘geekiest destination’ of them all. The island owes this special status to all the technological innovations and their strategic deployment in the digital arena, developed by the Reunion Island Tourism (IRT) over the past several years now. With three Golden Travel awards under the belt, a new website at the cutting edge of technology, the implementation of several innovative mobile applications and a strong presence on social networks it was a logical progression that the island hosts the tenth edition of Net Managers, an event dedicated to French speaking tourism decision makers who conduct their business both on and offline.

A group of fifty of the top people in the development of digital tourism came to Reunion for the week to discuss the economic, strategic and technological challenges of the coming years, participating in the tenth edition of Net Managers. Among them, a dozen speakers will specifically address the expected and anticipated major changes of how tourism does business in the future, i.e. the Next Big Things.

On the side of the specialized press are fifteen journalists covering the event to provide exposure to the destination in its main priority markets: France, Switzerland and Belgium.

This B2B event is a wonderful means of communication for the Destination Reunion that allows it to:

· Highlight the professionalism of local tourism stakeholders with a MICE target;

· Convey the image of a modern and innovative destination;

· Meeting to live the experience to all participating Net managers and stakeholders to create future subscribers.

Beyond the conference sessions and the networking organized during the five days, all participants will also discover the richness of culture and landscapes of the island of Reunion.
