AM NEWS | VOL. 60 December 2023

Dear Affiliate Members,

I am pleased to introduce you to a new edition of the Affiliate Members Newsletter. This monthly publication will inform you about the latest news, events, and initiatives related to your membership and our Affiliate Members network. Also included is the updated calendar of events for 2023, featuring the main UNWTO events and those carried out by our Affiliate Members, with the participation of the Affiliate Members Department or the UNWTO.

Before immersing ourselves in the holiday spirit, I would like to draw your attention to a few noteworthy events and initiatives that have recently involved our Affiliate Members, and that will be covered in details in this issue:

  • World Travel Market London
  • International Congress on Thermal Tourism
  • Working Meeting of the Board of Affiliate Members
  • UNWTO Affiliate Members Working Session
  • Seoul Sustainable Tourism Conference 2023
  • 7th UNWTO World Global Conference on Wine Tourism

The increased level of participation of our Affiliate Members, both during events organized by UNWTO, and during events organized by other Affiliate Members is a very positive sign that our network is growing stronger, allowing us to establish fruitful business relationships within the network. This increased engagement contributes to the success of our shared goals and the Organization's mission of developing a more responsible sustainable and accessible tourism industry.

Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude for the significant number of proposals we received from our Affiliate Members in response to the Call for Proposals for UNWTO's General PoW 2024-2025. We are excited to put these visionary initiatives into action starting in 2024 and to collaborate closely with our Affiliate Members, reinforcing the Organization's mission to build a more sustainable tourism industry.

The Affiliate Members Department will continue to collaborate and support the Affiliate Members' initiatives to the best of its capabilities. As usual, I am at your disposal and look forward to hearing any comments you might have.

Yours sincerely,
Ion Vilcu
