Fringe Responsible Tourism Networking Event for WTM

Last year to celebrate the first Responsible Tourism day at the WTM, Kerala operator The Blue Yonder and UK-based Your Safe Planet set up a networking event to bring together Responsible Tourism individuals and organisations.

The event attracted over 100 participants from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Thailand, UAE, UK and USA amongst others who came together to celebrate Responsible Tourism.

The co-ordinators have arranged the event again this year. This time the day before Responsible Tourism Day, on 11th November 2008 starting at 19.00 at the Abacus Bar -" close to Excel.

Said Gopinath Parayil of The Blue Yonder " It is a pleasure for us to know that many of last year-ªs participants are working together now and have become a part of the growing global network on Responsible Tourism. By making this networking evening an annual event on Responsible Tourism, we are connecting the market that is on a look out for genuine RT products from different parts of the world and vice-versa."

-¬---If you are in London on 11 Nov, please block your evening! We invite you to join us to network with the Tour Operators, Grass Root organisations, Media, Policy makers and many flag-bearers of Responsible Tourism. We look forward to seeing you at the cocktail bar for networking. If you have a new initiative to be launched in-front of crowd that understand Responsibility in Tourism, then this is the space!
