About

  • What is WTM Responsible Tourism?

    WTM Responsible Tourism is a programme of interviews, panels and debates now at four trade shows in the World Travel Market (WTM) Portfolio, including WTM London, Arabian Travel Market, WTM Latin America and WTM Africa.

    WTM acts as an international forum to drive the responsible tourism agenda forward, through seminars at several of the portfolio’s travel trade exhibitions, World Responsible Tourism Day, and working with responsible tourism experts to provide insight through the WTM blog.

    WTM Responsible Tourism aims to unite travel companies, organisations and individuals interested in spreading sustainable practices and ethical methods within the travel industry. This website provides year-round content highlighting the work communities take part in around the world, to help build a solid, sustainable future for travel and tourism.

  • How did WTM Responsible Tourism start?

    A declaration on responsible tourism was agreed in 2002, and WTM Responsibe Tourism has grown across four of our events since.
