WTM World Responsible Tourism Day
WTM Responsible Tourism is celebrated at four shows in the World Travel Market portfolio, and around the world with special events, communications and consumer promotions, demonstrating the industry’s determination to make a real difference.
There is only one World Responsible Tourism Day, marked at World Travel Market London. In 2016, this day celebrated its 10th anniversary and included seminars on responsible tourism being held on a new Responsible Tourism feature stand during the show at World Travel Market London.
We encourage and permit businesses which are actively engaged in promoting responsible tourism to use our WRTD logo, by applying to become a supporter.
With support from the UNWTO, WTM World Responsible Tourism Day wants the travel industry to work together to:
- Help drive change by educating more responsible behaviour with the travel and tourism industry and travelling public
- Explore the issues of how countries and destinations are made more sustainable including case studies of best practices
- Educate the marketplace and debate key environmental related issues to push the agenda and be a catalyst for change
- Harness the influence of World Travel Market as an international business forum to encourage the industry to drive the responsible tourism agenda forward.
