The CEG-Tourism Week 2020 takes place from 28 September to 2 October, organized by the TERRITUR Research Group – Tourism, Heritage and Space of the Centre of Geographical Studies (CEG) of the Institute of Geography and Spatial Planning (IGOT) at the University of Lisbon (ULisboa).

Throughout the week, TERRITUR researchers and guests will gather at (mostly online) conferences, round tables and other events to discuss tourism, a topic that, this year, earns special attention due to the impacts of the pandemic.

The CEG-Tourism Week 2020 will have a daily event, the first being the conference under the theme Pandemic, crisis and change, on September 28 (through the platform Zoom). Opening the week of events will be Mário Vale, Director of CEG, and Eduardo Brito-Henriques, co-coordinator of TERRITUR.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the roundtables Impacts and reorganization of hotels and restaurants take place in times of COVID-19 and Impact and response of the Tourism Animation sector in Portugal to the crisis of COVID-19 will take place, respectively on the 29th and 30th of September. On Thursday, October 1, it will be time for the conference (Re) Think tourism and culture in times of pandemic to take place.

On Friday, October 2, the documentary City for Sale, by Laura Alvarez, will have a screening with commentary, at 5 p.m. This will be the only event that doesn’t occur online, but at IGOT. Nonetheless, all events are free.
