What to expect?
On September 29-Oct 1st , 2023, the World Tourism Network (WTN) takes great pride in announcing five-in-one think tanks, our first annual meeting, and a giant FAM trip to Bali for Small and Medium Size Travel companies.
These think tanks will permit tourism leaders who work in or with small and medium size businesses to interact with each other and with local and national government organizations. The WTN think tanks are non-political and non-governmental in nature, and their only priority is to assure SME success in the coming years.
As a tourism and travel SME leader, these WTN think tanks are your opportunity to discuss the critical issues facing the travel and tourism industry and to develop innovative solutions for current and future problems.
An expert moderator will lead any specific think tank. On the last day of the event, the attendees will have an opportunity to create a written manifesto and a set of ideas and proposals in clear and precise language. These proposals will be published in major tourism media outlets, provided to all World Tourism Network members, and shared within our sector throughout the world.
These think tanks are a way for the travel and tourism industry to shape our collective future destiny actively.
This is an opportunity that your SME and you cannot afford to miss.
