Sharing of global tourism responsibility at World Travel Market

Meetings and travel
event World Travel Market (WTM) will launch WTM Responsible Tourism Day at this
November’s show.

In light of the
volcanic ash cloud and ongoing oil spill disaster, which demonstrate the
vulnerability of the meetings industry, Responsible Tourism Day will focus on
educating and inspiring the global industry to work towards environmental
sustainability.

“While we are
powerless to stop some catastrophes, they vividly illustrate to us all that we
should be responsible for greener tourism and environmental awareness,” says
chairman of WTM, Fiona Jeffries. “It’s a universal issue which brings us
together in a way nothing else can.”

A schedule of
speeches, debates, interviews and workshops will be available on 10 November,
with a yet-to-be named CEO from a multi-national company facing questions from
Stephen Sackur, presenter of the BBC current affairs programme
HardTalk.

World Travel Market
takes places 8 to 11 November at Excel, London.
