World Green Tourism is the only event in the region dedicated to the promotion of sustainable tourism. The inaugural World Green Tourism conference and exhibition ran in November 2010 and proved to be a landmark event which paved the way for the development of a greener tourism industry.

An impressive delegation of sustainability experts, industry leaders and government bodies gathered to debate issues surrounding sustainable development, support of local cultures and protection of indigenous species whilst still enabling the development of a tourism economy on which so many destinations depend.

The supporting exhibition showcased some of the best sustainable products, projects and initiatives which are enabling the development of a sustainable tourism industry.

World Green Tourism, supported by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority and the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi will return from 5-7 December 2011. We look forward to welcoming you there.
