The speakers responded chiefly to current legislative developments. Representatives of the Ministry of Regional Development – Tourism Department Director JUDr. Renata Králová and Ing. František Dickelt – spoke about transposing the EU Directive on Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements. Other contributions addressed economical topics, e.g., Ing. Radek Chaloupek discussed the new categorisation of tourism organisations. Last but not least, the audience was acquainted with a bit of the history of tourism, such as the development of accommodation facility ratings or historic border-crossing regulations.
The speakers’ contributions will be published in the magazines STUDIA TURISTICA and PRÁVNĚHISTORICKÉ STUDIE No. 47/II. For the former magazine, JUDr. Klára Dvořáková is preparing an article on a very current topic: Preparing Travel Agencies for GDPR and the Related Practical Difficulties.
