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

Dear Affiliate Members,

I am pleased to share with you the October 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.

I would like to express my gratitude to all Affiliate Members who attended and showcased the contributions and perspective of the Membership towards the recovery and development of the Tourism Industry during the Affiliate Members Corner we organized within the context of Tourism Expo Japan (23 September), and during the dedicated session that took place during World Tourism Day (27 September).

I am pleased to inform you that this month I had the pleasure of personally attending and supporting the following events organized by our Affiliate Members:

  • Skål International World Congress 2022,
  • 4º Congreso Gastronómico“Culinaria Castilla La Mancha,”
  • International Convention of Vatel Hotel and Tourism Business Schools,

The Affiliate Members Department will continue to support the Affiliate Members' initiatives to the best of its capabilities and has already planned to attend CETT Smart Destinations Conference and AstroFest 2022.

Regarding the upcoming events and initiatives, I am pleased to inform you that on 9 November we will hold the 57th meeting of the Board of the Affiliate Members in London, within the framework of the World Travel Market; while on 17 November, we have scheduled the 2nd meeting of the Committee on Matters Related to Affiliate Membership.
Please keep in mind that registration for the 117th UNWTO Executive Council is now open, make sure to check the AMConnected Platform to know about the registration details and more information.

As the tourism industry is on its way to recovery, the UNWTO seeks to keep counting on the valuable inputs of the Affiliate Members. I am glad to inform you that we have launched the call for proposals for the Programme of Work 2023, a great opportunity to engage with the UNWTO and share the valuable contributions of the private sector. I encourage you once again to send a proposal in the area of expertise or knowledge where your entity is best at.

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

Yours sincerely,
Ion Vilcu
