The bulletin of UNWTO’s Affiliate Members from the tourism sector

Dear Affiliate Members,

I am pleased to share with you the September Edition of the Newsletter, which focuses on the latest developments achieved by the Affiliate Members Department and future events and initiatives carried out by the UNWTO, the Affiliate Members Department, and the Affiliate Members themselves. Also included is the updated calendar of events for the second half of 2022, including UNWTO events and the ones carried out by or with the participation of our Affiliate Members.

As World Tourism Day (27 of September) approaches, I take this opportunity to encourage you in taking part in the celebration of such a special day for the tourism industry. Within this context, the Affiliate Members Department has organized a dedicated session for Affiliate Members: "Breaking the ground in private-public partnership" that will showcase presentations about Affiliate Members' projects and initiatives implemented as a result of successful publicprivate partnerships, followed by a debate and Q&A session.

The agenda for September counts several significant events for the tourism industry, and the Affiliate Members Department has planned to attend and is looking forward to meeting and having a chat with the attending Affiliate Members:

  • Tourism EXPO Japan 2022, 22-25 September (Tokyo, Japan),
  • World Tourism Day, 27 September (Bali, Indonesia),
  • Iberseries & Platino Industria, 27-30 September (Madrid, Spain).
  • International Congress on Thermal Tourism, 27-29 September (Ourense, Galicia, Spain)

Make sure to check the AMConnected Platform for more information on the aforementioned events.

I am also pleased to inform you that the 65th Regional Commission for Africa, will be taking place in Arusha, Tanzania (Africa) from 5-7 October. I would like to remind you that the registration for the last appointment for the regional commission is now open and that more updates will be posted on the AMConnected Platform.

Lastly, I am glad to keep working with our Affiliate Members to implement some of the initiatives and activities included in our Programme of Work 2022.
We are always available to explore potential collaborations with all of you.

As usual, I am at your disposal and look forward to hearing any comments you might have.

Yours sincerely,
Ion Vilcu
