The Global Centre for Tourism Education and Training at the Macao Institute for Tourism Studies (IFTM) and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) are jointly organising another online training programme entitled “Capacity Building for Sustainable Tourism Through Festivals and Events”, which will be held between 24th and 26th May.

Other speakers include tourism academics, experts and operators from Macao and abroad, who will address topics related to incorporating festivals and events into a destination tourism strategy, the benefits of sports events to a destination and how events may benefit communities in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

The programme, which is by invitation only, has been designed for decision-makers in the tourism ministries and administrations of the UNWTO’s member states in Asia and the Pacific.
