7th UNWTO Silk Road Tour Operators Forum
Generously supported by ITB Berlin, this year’s edition of the Silk Road Tour Operators Forum, a specialised event focused on the Silk Road private tourism sector, took place on Thursday, 8 March 2018 in ITB Berlin.
During a 2-hour workshop, UNWTO ran a session designed to empower Silk Road tour operators to better understand, engage and work with the international travel trade.
A novel speed-networking session was conducted in the framework of the Tour Operators Forum. It allowed participating tour operators to showcase their latest products tour packages, especially innovative proposals in the areas of transnational collaboration and experiential travel etc. to an international audience.
A competition for the best presentation took place on a UNWTO Silk Road Facebook page after the speed-networking session. The Republic of Buryatia was the clear winner, having gained the most likes.
