There is a need for developing new opportunities, activities and events attractive to young adults, both for those living in and outside the region.
Young adults are key for the tourism and recreational sectors of the Fehmarn Belt region – but it requires both the local governments and the operators to think in new ways. What are the mega trends of tomorrow’s tourism and how can the region prepare for that? What role can digital media play in developing the tourist sector with young adults in mind?
