Minister of Tourism for Jamaica Edmund Bartlett is slated to share insights on ways to boost the resilience and sustainability of the global tourism industry, during a series of high-level international discussions and meetings with international tourism partners, when he attends the much anticipated ‘A World for Travel’ tourism forum.
Bartlett will join fellow industry leaders in Nimes, France for discussions on sustainable travel, which will entail case studies and targeted sessions throughout the two-day conference.
He is slated to take part in a press conference which will examine the issue: “Transforming the Travel Industry – Destination by Destination/Supplier by Supplier” as well as a panel discussion on the theme: “Driving Sustainability and Preparedness Through Academic Rigor” on Thursday, October 27. The Minister will also partake in a fireside chat exploring global initiatives on travel.
Minister Bartlett explained that he is anticipating conversations on “how key players in the global tourism industry can work together to transform it sustainably as the event promises to ensure thought leadership that delivers ‘the how’ and ‘the what’ in sustainability”.
A World for Travel is expected to have up to 400 C-level travel and travel-related private and public sector players in attendance.
Commenting on his planned involvement in the event, Bartlett expressed that he is “looking forward to the networking and learning opportunities that will come from an event filled with a vast selection of travel professionals, leaders and experts,” adding that “it will also serve as an excellent platform to promote brand Jamaica and our tourism product.”
