The last day (Thursday) will feature Transforming Travel mini keynotes from executives from AirBnB,, Air Asia, and Inle Heritage Myanmar, followed by a discussion on the reduction of single-use plastic.

The delegate badges will also don'tt have any plastic.

Then, for the first time ever, we will host 8 Thematic Strategy Workshops in 8 Community Villages around Nakhon Phanom. There is a max of 40 people per session, so make sure that you reserve as quickly as possible.
