The Global Tourism Resilience Conference will take place over two days, 16 and 17 February, and will include panel discussions, networking opportunities, presentations and lively debates on issues related to developing resilience in tourism.

Experts from their respective fields will gather to jointly discuss issues central to future-proofing travel and tourism in the face of various disruptions ahead.

“The resilience of global tourism will once again take center stage, with key experts responsible for building the sector’s resilience. As tourism destinations continue to recover, it is vital that resilience is at the heart of planning and development to future-proof the sector from potential shocks,” said the founder and tourism minister of the Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Center (GTRCMC ). Honorable Edmund Bartlett.

Topics of discussion

Some of the topics that will be discussed include “Building Digital Resilience of Tourism”, “Building Resilience of Tourism Infrastructure” and “Resilience of Women in Tourism”, as well as other key areas related to tourism resilience.

Speakers include the Prime Minister of Jamaica, the Honorable Andrew Holness, and the Secretary General of UNWTO, H.E. Zurab Pololikashvili.

As part of the conference program, Global Tourism Resilience Day will be celebrated on February 17 for the second time, honoring the United Nations’ official decision in February 2022 to observe this day annually. There will also be a Tourism Resilience Awards Gala to recognize individuals and organizations who have helped build tourism resilience around the world.

Global delegates to attend

More than 200 delegates from all over the world are expected in the heart of Jamaica’s lively tourist capital.

“We are preparing to give attendees a warm Jamaican welcome that will leave an indelible mark. There really is no better setting than Jamaica to host this mega conference,” said Tourism Director Donovan White.

The first Global Tourism Resilience Conference took place in February 2023 at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica.
