It gives me great pleasure to invite you who have so kindly supported us in the past to join us at the Global Tourism Economy Forum (GTEF) this year which will be held on 15-16 October 2016 in Macau.
As we celebrate our 5th anniversary, an important milestone in our on-going effort to promote sustainable development of the global tourism industry, GTEF 2016 will once again gather tourism and economy ministers, the world’s most influential business leaders, decision-makers and academia to discuss how different industries can capitalize on tourism development and contribute to economic growth.
The theme of this year’s Forum is THE GROWING CONSUMER CLASS, RETHINKING AND RESHAPING THE FUTURE TOURISM LANDSCAPE. Our discussion will zero in on how this rising independent-minded, resourceful and tech-savvy group is more than ever the increasingly influential force in the tourism industry.
Allow Allow me to share with you an overview of GTEF and what can be expected at this year’s Forum where we promise to gather the same dominant crowd and deliver forward-thinking discussions in the dynamic tourism landscape. Corporate and VIP packages are available and registrations before 30 August 2016 are eligible for early bird rates.
Your prestigious organization is among the key stakeholders in tourism economy. With your extensive knowledge and experience in the field, your participation will unequivocally raise the bar of the Forum. I look forward to welcoming you in Macau this October.
