3rd World Ecotourism Conference, 3 October 2011 – 5 October 2011, Independence Hotel, Sihanoukville, Cambodia

It is with great pleasure and honour to anounce that the 3rd World Ecotourism Conference will be held in Cambodia from the 3rd to 5th of October 2011. 250 esteemed members of the ecotourism fraternity will gather at Sihanoukville, Cambodia Bay (recently enlisted as an elite member of “The Most Beautiful Bays in the World”) to deliberate on the future of ecotourism in Asia. Ecotourism in Asia is at the crossroads, while high value sustainable adventure travel in Africa is thriving and in Europe, responsible tourists are prepared to pay more for ecotourism. In developing countries, ecotourism is used as a socio-economic tool to help the rural poor. While the eco-experience can be culturally intense, ecotourism businesses in Asia generally suffer from a vicious cycle of “low price, low value” services, giving rise to rampant unsustainable practices and “green-washing”.
