Are you a green travel guru? Do you want to see and be seen at the most important sustainable tourism event of the year? If so, pack your bag and head to World Green Tourism Abu Dhabi 5-7 December, 2011.
Nothing advances sustainability more than a meeting of green minds, which is why the World Green Tourism event in Abu Dhabi is the one of the most important conferences to attend. Organized by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, WGT Abu Dhabi puts hundreds of international government officials, planners, educators, and tourism authorities devoted to sustainable travel in the same room.
Among this year’s list of important speakers are our very own Green Sheikh – H.H Sheikh Dr. Abdul Aziz Bin Ali Al Nuaimi, Justin Francis, CEO & Co-Founder of ResponsibleTravel.com, and Prof. Harold Goodwin, the Director of the International Center for Responsible Tourism – all of whom promise to share valuable knowledge about the present and future of sustainable tourism in the Middle East (see a list of hotels in the Middle East that recently won impressive sustainability accolades).
From December 5-7, 2011, this event will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) – the region’s largest exhibition venue. In addition to participating in seminars and workshops, attendees will have a chance to meet a host of businesses and organizations showcasing sustainable technologies and services. A few site visits to sustainable projects throughout Abu Dhabi are also on the agenda. If you are even remotely concerned with sustainable tourism, this is definitely the conference to attend.
