This initiative, launched in October, aims, via an action plan, to support the conversion of destinations, promote cohesion, encourage the exchange of good practices, and make good use of synergistic gains between the destinations and the sector. The DTI Network, which is made up of nearly 70 town councils and entities, has now been joined by the following member institutions: FEMP; Red.es; the Spanish Confederation of Hotels (Confederación Española de Hoteles - CEHAT); the Spanish Tourism Quality Institute (Instituto para la Calidad Turística Española - ICTE); the AMETIC and CONETIC associations; and UNE.

The CEO of UNE, Javier García, signed the agreement between UNE and Red DTI on February 27, during the constitution of its two governing bodies, presided over by Isabel Oliver, Secretary of State for Tourism.
