What is the Mekong Tourism Forum?


The Mekong Tourism Forum 2015 will be held under the theme of Unlocking the Potential of the Mekong Region via Innovative Partnerships. The forum will focus on enhancing collaboration between the public and private sectors to develop responsible and sustainable tourism, and protecting the natural and cultural heritage of the GMS for future generations.

The Mekong Tourism Forum is the flagship annual gathering for the six-nation Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS). Since 1996 the MTF has provided a platform for stakeholders in the tourism industry to discuss the development and promotion of travel to, from and within the GMS. The MTF is inclusive, interactive and results-oriented, encouraging all participants to work together to effectively market the GMS as a single destination.

The 2015 Mekong Tourism Forum is free to attend for qualified industry professionals, however we will encourage donations to a yet to be determined responsible tourism initiative in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS).
