This monthly publication will inform you about the latest news, events, and initiatives related to your membership and the Affiliate Members network. Additionally, we would like to share with you that the Affiliate Members Department has been working on a strategic analysis that has allowed us to redefine our mission, purpose, and value proposition in order to maximize the benefits we offer you as a member of the UNWTO.

In this edition of our AMNewsletter, you will find a brief description of the mission and purpose of the Affiliate Members Department, and the main objectives of the membership. Also included is the updated calendar of events for 2023, including UNWTO events and those carried out by or with the participation of our Affiliate Members.
