Holubová Advokati Supported Tourism Conference Organised by the Faculty of Law of Charles University

16/11/2017

On 9 November 2017, the Faculty of Law of Charles University held a conference entitled Current Legislative Issues Affecting Tourism IV (Aktuální otázky právní úpravy cestovního ruchu IV), which was supported financially by our law firm. All participants and speakers were welcomed by our executive, JUDr. Klára Dvořáková, whose conference speech will be published in the magazine STUDIA TURISTICA.


The conference, which was organised by the Interdisciplinary Centre for the Development of Lawyering Skills of the Faculty of Law of Charles University, is already the fourth conference held on academic premises on the topic of tourism. JUDr. Klára Dvořáková contributes regularly to such conferences.

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.
