The STEP project team held an online presentation on the itop.mk platform in front of tour operators from Albania and Germany. Participants were introduced to the features and how to use the platform, as well as the opportunities and benefits of using it.
The platform aroused great interest among the participants. Despite the planned 40 minutes for presentation as well as possible questions and answers, the on-line meeting lasted 2 hours and during that time a constructive discussion developed that leads to possible cooperation in the near future. Participants welcomed our initiative, and believe that in the future it will use tourism workers as a tool to promote its capacity. Also, the team of the STEP project had the opportunity to hear from tourism professionals from outside possible points of improvement of the platform.
