Selling the Silk Road: unite and conquer

South Gallery Room 7 & 8
 
Once acclaimed as the "greatest route in the history of mankind", modern-day travellers experience the Silk Road as a myriad of interconnected routes, incredibly rich in natural and cultural, but spread across various countries throughout Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Hence, is it feasible to promote the Silk Road as an overarching tourism route? Is dividing the Silk Road into thematic tourism themes or cluster regions the road to success? What role can marketing and social media play in promoting the Silk Road? These and many more questions will be assessed by a panel of tourism experts active across the region. Join us!
 
The Silk Road seminar is jointly organized by UNWTO and Travel Perspective, and supported by WTM London.

7th UNWTO Silk Road Ministers’ Meeting at ITB Berlin 2017 

Русская версия 

With the support of Messe Berlin, the UNWTO Silk Road Programme organized the seventh edition of the annual Silk Road Ministers Meeting. Celebrating 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, this year’s meeting focused on the impact sustainable tourism policies and practices have on local Silk Road communities.

As a region home to outstanding natural landscapes and cultural heritage sites that transcend individual countries, sustainability is a vital issue for the Silk Road. By agreeing upon a common approach, Silk Road countries agreed to advance the 2030 Sustainable Development agenda.

The UNWTO Silk Road Programme would like thank all involved partners for their outstanding input.

The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), together with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism of Mongolia and the World Cities Scientific Development Alliance (WCSDA), organized the International Silk Road Conference on Nomadic Tourism and Sustainable Cities in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia on 13-15 October 2016.

The conference gathered Ministers and high-level officials from 9 UNWTO Silk Road Member States, official representatives from Silk Road regions, the sister UN Agency the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and UNWTO Affiliate Members to address the potential of tourism initiatives focused on nomadic tourism and sustainable city tourism.

The Silk Road countries agreed that, while the Silk Road presents extensive opportunities for development and growth, long-term success will depend upon increased collaboration in the three key areas identified in the Silk Road Action Plan: marketing and promotion, capacity building and destination management, and travel facilitation.

UNWTO would like to thank the co-organizers and all attending delegates for their great input and support during the event. Special gratitude is also due to Turkish Airlines and MIAT for offering sponsorship to the conference.
