The First World Conference on Tourism and Culture will convene in Siem Reap Cambodia, 4 to 6 February 2015.
According to the UNWTO media release the inaugural event will bring together ministers of tourism and ministers of culture from around the world, experts and stakeholders from both sectors to explore new models of partnership between tourism and culture.
UNWTO claims cultural tourism can contribute to economic growth, social development and cultural preservation.
Over the course of two days, participants will explore different roles and mandates on five key topics – governance and partnership models, cultural preservation, living cultures and creative industries, cultural routes and urban regeneration through cultural tourism.
Confirmed speakers include King Simeon II, Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, UN High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, John Delaney, senior vice president of Seabourn, and Elizabeth Becker, award-winning author and former correspondent for the New York Times.
UNWTO general secretary, Taleb Rifai, said: “This milestone event will provide a unique opportunity for tourism and culture stakeholders from all regions to discuss how to further harness the power of tourism and culture to alleviate poverty, create jobs, protect heritage and promote international understanding, contributing to the post-2015 development agenda.”
