This forum has become the most important of its kind in the Americas and stands out as one of the most important in the world. “More than a hundred organizations that have signed our Manifesto for Sustainable, Solidarity and Socially Responsible Tourism are currently participating in this scheme and are part of a network,” Ferreira Acosta said.
In these years, more than 130 professionals from about twenty countries participated and this year speakers from Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the Dominican Republic, Japan and Italy, among others, will participate.
“We have attended over 1,500 people at these four previous events, all of them high-level professionals, which is one of the added values of the Summit and the quality of the people who accompany us, the quality of communications we can make very relevant,” Ferreira Acosta said.
From this event, more than 300 appointments and business initiatives were created between sustainable tourism providers and companies in the sector.
“The Summit is a very important space for generating trends, it is not just an event, it is a platform for networking and a platform for exchanging experiences, and where we communicate to set the trend,” he said.
This year the summit is an important event to restore tourism in Latin America from a sustainable perspective. This fifth edition, to be held in person and virtually, will only have the physical presence of 130 local, national and international leaders, under health security protocols.
