“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”— the old adage is, as usual, sage.
Of course work, you have to. But who says you can’t mix business with pleasure? In fact, you can have the best of the two worlds with conference tourism: arguably the best way to combine top-grade sightseeing with getting the job done. This rising international trend was, alas, halted with the pandemic — yet as the world is getting the hang of travel after three years of Covid-19 restrictions, conference tourism is once again becoming a feasible option.
