24th UNWTO General Assembly | Affiliate Members

30 November - 3 December 2021, Madrid - Spain

The 43rd UNWTO Affiliate Members Plenary Session will take place on 30 November  in Madrid as the first official activity of the General Assembly. The Plenary Session is the most important governing structure of the Affiliate Members and offers them an ideal setting to share initiatives and debate on the annual Programme of Work.

This year, the Affiliate Members Plenary Session will be held in the framework of the General Assembly, which provides the Affiliate Members with the opportunity to participate in the sessions of the General Assembly and other relevant events and activities, contribute to the UNWTO Programme of Work along with the Member States, hold bilateral meetings with high-level public sector representatives in order to discuss public-private cooperation issues, and be updated on the UNWTO’s overall activity.

On this occasion, the agenda of the Affiliate Members Plenary Session will focus on the following priority topics:

  • Joint Affiliate Member actions for tourism recovery;
  • Review of the Programme of Work 2021 and proposals for the Programme of Work for 2022-2023; and
  • Approval of the revised Legal Framework of Affiliate Membership.

In addition, the 43rd Plenary Session will take place prior to the election of the new Board of the Affiliate Members. Therefore, the Affiliate Members who will be presenting their candidatures will have an ideal opportunity to network and promote their candidatures a few days before the voting phase.
