Singapore Airport will host a Global Sustainable Tourism Conference this month, where experts will discuss how to make sustainable travel easier, with the aim of promoting sustainable tourism and the creation of sustainable infrastructure.
The International Sustainability Conference will take place from September 1 to 10, 2019.
This year’s theme is “Making Sustainable Tourism a Success”.
The conference will be held in Singapore and take place in the same city as the 2016 International Sustainable Tourism Forum in New York, which saw a record number of speakers.
The conference is the brainchild of Singapore Tourism Development Authority chief executive Officer Tan Chuan, who has been involved in promoting sustainable travel since 2010.
The event will be chaired by the International Sustainable Tourism Alliance and the Singapore Tourism Commission.
A panel of experts from across the world will be on hand to discuss the best ways to improve the environment and sustainable tourism, and how to create sustainable jobs and opportunities for Singaporeans, according to the event’s website.
It also includes panel discussions on the issues that affect sustainable tourism.
“We are excited to be part of this unique global event to explore sustainable tourism in Singapore, which has been a growing source of income for the country,” Tan said.
“This event will give Singaporeans an opportunity to learn from some of the world’s leading experts on sustainable tourism to share their ideas on how to achieve a sustainable future for the world.”
The International Sustainable Travel Forum was held in New Jersey in the early 2000s.
Its keynote speaker at the 2017 event was the former head of the UN’s World Food Programme, Yury Durov, who was then the head of UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
At the 2018 event, Tan was the keynote speaker.
The 2018 conference is also the largest gathering of sustainable travel experts in the world.
This year’s conference will feature more than 50 speakers, and is the largest in the country.
It will feature experts from the United States, Canada, Britain, Japan, South Africa, Australia, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Turkey and Brazil.
Tan said the International Sustainable Tourist Alliance aims to promote sustainable travel, encourage sustainable development and promote sustainable tourism as a way of life in Singapore.
“This conference will bring together a wide range of stakeholders and experts to provide a platform to bring together people from all around the world, from those who share the same passion for sustainable travel to those who have different views on what the world needs to achieve sustainable travel,” Tan told The Hindu.
