The videoconference will be held via Interactio, an online conferencing system set up and organized by the European Commission.

Please note that there will be no separate preparatory meetings, as EFFAT members will have the opportunity to discuss at the General Assembly of the EFFAT Tourism Sector on 26 November 2020 (9.30 am – 12.30 pm).

Attached you will find the official invitation and agenda. The link to the Interactio meeting, as well as further working documents will be sent in the running up to the meeting.

Please confirm your participation as soon as possible, before 20 November 2020 at the latest. Even though this will be a videoconference meeting, the EC does need the list of participants for reporting purposes.

Participants will receive more information on how to connect to the online meeting in due time, as we are awaiting further instructions from the EC.

If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact the EFFAT Secretariat.

Looking forward to see you all back virtually!

With kind regards,
