The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is currently conducting a research on ‘private tourism services through digital platforms’, a phenomenon often referred to as the ‘sharing economy’, the ‘collaborative economy’ or ‘peer to peer’ (P2P) economy.*

During ITB 2017, UNWTO will present the preliminary results of this ongoing research.

The event intends to discuss the importance of this topic, the various issues it raises, and how these issues are being addressed by many destinations.
