The third symposium Healing Power of the Alps, taking place in Bad Hofgastein in the region Salzburger Land on 8th and 9th October 2021, will focus on nature-based and health-promoting tourism. The overarching goal is to position the Alpine region as a globally attractive health destination with a vibrant regional economy, especially in context of the pandemic.

Organizers are ITG - Innovation Service for Salzburg, Paracelsus Medical University (PMU), Platform Heilkraft der Alpen (HDA) and Alpine Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC). For the first time, the symposium will take place as a joint international initiative of the entire Alpine region. It is co-financed by the  Interreg Alpine Space project HEALPS2.


You can expect top-class speakers, including Lola Uña Cárdenas from the World Travel & Tourism Council, Arnulf Hartl from Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg and Franz Fischler, President of the European Forum Alpbach and former EU Agriculture Commissioner.
