Global Tourism Forum is the most influential platform on Tourism Industry in the World.


The Global Tourism Forum is the title of World Tourism Forum Institute’s events, which built on holistic and equitable principles that underpin the sustainable development of tourism events. By doing so, it highlights the need to harmonize local and global nuances in a sustainable manner.
