Sardinia, an Island for all seasons. Bitas 2013, active tourism is served.

5 marzo 2013 | By

Bitas 2013 

The Active tourism is the “flagship” of touristic offer in Sardinia, a region that proposes many opportunities to live a period of fun and relax in outdoor activities and wonderful natural environments.
The appointment for the Sardinian touristic industry, both national and international, is at Bosa (Province of Oristano) from 12 to 17th march, where is planned the 4th edition of BITAS, International Active Tourism  Fair in Sardinia, organized by Agenzia Sardegna Promozione under the patronage of ENIT, the Italian National Agency for Tourism, which acknowledged “the high tourist value of the event.”
Touristic, but also economic, we might add. Because tourism is a precious sector for the development of our beautiful Island and the national economy in general. The aim of the event is to promote and boost active tourism as one of the major events backing the purpose of developing an “all year long tourism season” in Sardinia. So tourists have the opportunity to have fun with scuba diving, snorkeling tour, kayaking, hiking, Nordic walking, horse riding, sailing and many other outdoor activities.
In active tourism, many touristic companies decided to study and develop new ideas and projects. For example the Technological Multisport Week (TMW), multisport week supported by advanced technologies and developed together Area 3 – A Human Motion Lab and Aqvatech Engineering, companies both operating in the Science and Technology Park of “Porto Conte Ricerche”, at Capo Caccia-Alghero.
BITAS is a strategic fair for the next tourist season and the hope is that the participation of tourism companies is a further incentive to improve infrastructures and networks for a sector that for Sardinia is simply essential.
