Programme

The MTF 2022 Programme

Mekong Tourism Forum 2022

Hosted by the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism in Quang Nam Province from 12 – 13 October, the Mekong Tourism Forum 2022 will focus on the theme of “Rebuild Tourism, Rebound with Resilience.”

What to expect at MTF 2022: 

  • World-class keynotes on rethinking the future of tourism. Topics will include evolving megatrends that affect tourism recovery, as well as concerted policies, regulations and investments needed to strengthen tourism resilience and sustainability with a focus on nature-based solutions and technology adoption. 
  • Three interactive expert-led panel discussions centering on: i) new strategies to connect sustainable tourism suppliers and buyers with markets, financing, and nature; ii) social enterprises as a powerful tool for inclusive and sustainable tourism recovery, development, and promotion; and iii) technology to unlock green tourism opportunities. 
  • Opportunities to reflect on lessons learned from the ongoing regional tourism recovery while rethinking long-term post-crisis tourism planning and development following resilience-based approaches to strengthen regional tourism supply chains and foster cross-sectoral collaboration. 
  • A sustainable tourism exhibition from Viet Nam and other GMS countries showcasing and promoting responsible tourism products and services with a positive environmental and community impact. The exhibition will also include experiential hands-on workshops to foster better understanding of local cultures. We strongly encourage participation from growing tourism micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises in the subregion. 
  • Networking opportunities to reconnect face-to-face with tourism stakeholders from both the public and private sectors. 
  • Go beyond the cultural immersion of Hoi An’s UNESCO-recognized ancient town to explore how this town is setting an example as a leading green tourism destination in the region.
