Industry invitation: Inspiration to make tourism more sustainable

Hope you might be available to come along to this awesome event next week – it is a bit short notice (registration deadline is Monday 21 Jan 2019) but if you can and are interested in being a part of a discussion about the global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how they relate to tourism in little old New Zealand… please do take advantage of this special industry rate which gives you entry to the panel session on the 24th and then the networking event straight afterwards if you can!

The world’s first research conference on Tourism and the Sustainable Development Goals is happening in Auckland on 24 – 25 January 2019. With plenty of industry speakers and action research on the programme, this is an ideal opportunity to sharpen your knowledge about sustainable tourism.

Come along for a one-hour discussion between large and small tourism operators and destination management organisations at a special rate. They will be talking about what they’re doing to ensure tourism is good for local people, the planet and local economies. This panel session is scheduled close to the end of the business day so that industry colleagues can attend, and stay to mingle with conference delegates and speakers at the Conference Reception afterwards.

  • Steve Armitage –  Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development
