CTO hosts Sustainable Tourism Conference in Guyana Georgetown, Guyana will host the event

The Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) is preparing for the 13th Annual Caribbean Conference on Sustainable Tourism, which will take place April 15th-18th in Georgetown, Guyana.

The CTO and the Guyana Tourism Authority have announced the theme of this year’s conference as ‘Keeping the Right Balance: Sustaining our Resources’.

The conference will seize the opportunity to urge Caribbean tourism planners, policymakers and stakeholders to focus on striking a balance that can sustain the world’s resources if they are to truly embrace sustainable tourism in the Caribbean.

The conference will address a number of critical issues such as how sustainable tourism and local communities can better engage with climate change and biodiversity conservation initiatives.

It will also focus on customer-centric sustainable tourism products and the development of niche areas such as adventure tourism and agro- and culinary tourism.

Gail Henry, the CTO’s sustainable tourism product specialist said: “We are very much looking forward to this year’s conference in Guyana. Our theme for 2012 reflects the need for the Caribbean to look at sustainable tourism from a long-term point of view, thinking about how what we do today will impact our business and the communities we work in tomorrow.”
