Through the Tourism Cares Meaningful Travel Platform, travel professionals can participate in their Virtual Meaningful Travel Summit: Colombia + Beyond, an online educational tourism resiliency experience. Attendees will experience live events on an all new technology platform.

Sessions include:

>> Thought-provoking panels of global and local experts. Engaging thought leaders guide at-home audiences through themes imperative to tourism resiliency - social justice, conservation and peace. Our speaker’s stories will bring to life how sustainability is the core to resiliency for the economy, for people and the planet - and how to create a long-lasting future for your travel business. Examples and experiences from Colombia will demonstrate how supporting the growth of social justice, peace and conservation in tourism then becomes key pillars to business strategies everywhere.

>> A dynamic exhibit hall. Interact directly with social impact entrepreneurs and owners from Colombia through live meet-and-greet sessions. Discover meaningful tourism products to share forward, then, use what you’ve learned to connect to purpose-driven experiences like these around the world. Walk the booths — virtually — to meet fifteen exhibitors from Colombia who implement community tourism experiences that are having transformative impact.

Through this innovative platform you can chat with them directly, learn about what they offer, and ask questions. Product packets are downloadable and shareable directly.  Not only is an opportunity for product developers for Colombia, but for anyone looking for an opportunity to see what kinds of experiences exist at the local level, and how to work with local leaders around the world. Allow their stories to become the inspiration on how the tourism industry can connect and build experiences in destinations globally. 

>> Networking with like-minded travel professionals.  Engage in interactive one-on-one and group meeting rooms with your peers to discuss what you’ve learned, build business and make global connections — all within this dynamic virtual experience!

In true Tourism Cares tradition, we bring together a cross segment of industry leadership, from travel and tourism professionals to voices on the ground, all in one event to activate your travel business around a resilient future.
