The Responsible Tourism Event is a continuation of the successful RT networking events that started in 2009. Organized and supported by ITB Asia, Wild Asia, The Blue Yonder and The Green Circuit, this annual event hopes to bring together sustainable tourism practitioners to share, engage, learn and be inspired to make a difference.

The 2-hour Responsible Tourism event will also feature experts and practitioners in responsible tourism who will be able to give you insights and know how to implement sustainable best practices within your organization. Come and learn, engage and be inspired! Presentation topics are as follows:

- How to Engage and Motivate Staff to Support Your Sustainability Strategy
