MTF 2018 this year again is free of charge for industry professionals, thanks to this year's host, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Thailand and the Province of Nakhon Phanom.
This year, Mekong Tourism Forum has three key parts:
- Mekong Tourism Forum – Transforming Travel (Part 1)
- Mekong Tourism Forum – Transforming Travel (Part 2)
- Mekong Tourism Forum – Transforming Travel (Part 3)
MTF 2018 ends with the Mekong Tourism Food Festival on Thursday evening, and optional technical tours around Nakhon Phanom the following day on Friday.
Mekong Tourism Forum 2018 also has two integrated side events:
- Mekong Innovative Startups in Tourism (MIST)
- Mekong Mini Movie Festival
Finally, we are very excited to announce that very soon, the new Destination Mekong e-Newsletter will go live. Destination Mekong is executing programs and initiatives, including Mekong Moments, the Mekong Mini Movie Festival, the Experience Mekong Collection, and MIST (in collaboration with MBI), as a pubic-private partnership, aligned to the strategic framework of the GMS Tourism Working Group, coordinated by the Mekong Tourism Coordinating Office (MTCO), in order to fulfil the mandate of the Mekong Tourism Collaboration to promote the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) as a sustainable, experiential, and inclusive single tourism destination.
That's it for our weekly update. We look forward to hearing from you as always. If you ever missed one of our newsletter - no worries, they are all archived on MekongTourism.org.
Have a great week!
