David Travers QC will speak at a Conference hosted by the Royal Society for Public Health concerning welfare within the international travel industry.

The Conference entitled “Keeping International Travellers Healthy on Land and at Sea – meeting the public health challenges” will cover the issues involved for tourism providers in preventing food and waterbourne illness relating to travel accommodation and recreational water use, all of which is dependent on the tourism providers ensuring they have appropriate management strategies and controls in place to manage these processes.

This two-day conference brings together experts in their field to share current thinking on pathogen risk, legal guidance, the threat of norovirus and cryptosporidiosis, water safety hazards, hot tubs in holiday settings, and the impact of false claims of gastric illness on the travel industry.

Speakers will also discuss and share insights on the information available to help inform travellers about destination health risks and explore the challenging requirements of being an ‘expert witness’ in travel associated cases of food and waterborne illness.

The Conference will be held in London on 10 – 11 April 2019.
