First ASEAN Sustainable Tourism Awards now open for entries
Learning in the forest
The inaugural ASEAN Sustainable Tourism
Awards (ASTA) is welcoming entries from tourism operators in South-east Asia.
Launched as part of ASEAN’s Tourism Strategic
Plan 2016-2025, ASTA aims to boost the profile of sustainable tourism
businesses in South-east Asia, promote responsible tourism in the region,
combat seasonality and rebalance tourist flows towards best practice tourism
The biennial awards will take place every two
years with a dedicated theme decided jointly by ASEAN NTOs.
With nature-based tourism as its theme this
year, the award will recognise two winners from each ASEAN member country,
representing urban and rural sectors respectively.
The 20 winners will be highlighted on their
NTO’s website and www.aseatourism.travel and
receive exposure as a national best practice operator during press conferences
and trade shows such as ATF, TRAVEX, ITB and WTM.
The awards ceremony will take place during
the ASEAN Tourism Forum in Chiang Mai in January 2018.
