Responsible Tourism Summit – South Asia January 2018

Staying Ahead 

Maintaining competitive advantage through Responsible Tourism sharing experience from across South Asia: Delhi 19-20 January 2018.

2018 will see the third Responsible Tourism Summit in Delhi and the prestigious Responsible Tourism Awards which are presented at the Summit. This year the Awards and the Summit are being extended to include:

Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, and the Maldives.

The countries of South Asia share many of the same challenges:

  • Overtourism
  • Impact of climate change and tourism in the Himalayas and the Indian Ocean
  • Reaching out to the right travellers and spreading awareness
  • Cost of conversion to sustainability
  • Dealing with weekday slumps, pricing and policy issues
  • Preservation of built-heritage
  • Encouraging neighbourhood and micro-tourism

 

Outlook India has decided, therefore, to invite some of the pioneers of sustainability in our region to learn from their experiences, and better our own business models.

To bring real change in the region and counter the forces of climate change and mindless mass tourism models, we ought to find common solutions to common, quintessentially South Asian problems.

Outlook India  has been publishing Outlook Traveller, one of India’s oldest and most successful travel magazines and guides for 17 years. The last three, in particular, have been devoted to identifying, recognising and supporting responsible tourism businesses across India.
