WTM LONDON, 7 NOVEMBER, 2022 — Visit Valencia has partnered with The World Tourism Association for Culture and Heritage (WTACH) to host the world’s first tourism summit dedicated to the protection and preservation of culture and heritage in tourism destinations.

The summit, called GS23, will take place in Valencia, Spain, 24-25 September 2023.

The overarching aim of the event will be to raise awareness and ensure that the unique attributes, history, cultural assets and values that attract tourists to locations around the world are preserved on behalf of future generations.

“We want to show Valencia’s support for a new kind of tourism that is inclusive and cherishes the magnificent diversity of culture and heritage on our planet,” said Ms Sandra Gómez, Vice Mayor of Valencia.

The agreement to host the global summit was sealed on behalf of WTACH by its President & CEO, Nigel Fell and Ms Gómez, at the Visit Valencia stand at the World Travel Market in London, 7 November.

“This inaugural summit is the expression of a movement whose time has come,” said Mr Fell.

“Our aim is to inspire good governance and for travel and tourism to be the protector of global culture and heritage assets, particularly for local communities, who are often the creators and custodians of those assets over millennia.

“Valencia is a leading light in this field, so it was a natural fit for WTACH to work with Visit Valencia to introduce our inaugural global summit,” said Mr Fell.

Valencia has a strong track record of breaking new ground on cultural matters. It is currently European Capital of Smart Tourism 2022 and World Design Capital 2022. It has also recently been named European Green Capital 2024, due to its past and current achievements in the field of sustainable tourism, climate neutrality and green transition.

“The sensitive and wise preservation of both our past and living culture is very much a part of our ‘smart tourism' ethos,” said Ms Gómez.

“Delegates will experience a dynamic city renowned for both its modern and traditional culture,” she said.

GS23 aims to attract representatives from government ministries, tourism boards, leading private sector decision makers, tour operators, corporate sponsors, community representatives, NGOs, media and others.

The GS23 conference programme and information for delegates will be hosted on the WTACH website,, in the coming weeks.

Breaking New Grounds Keeps Senior Hoteliers Coming Back to Annual Summit

Bangkok, Thailand (24 Feb 2017) – The Hotel Management Thailand Summit (HMT), the region’s leading conference, will return to Bangkok on 25 May 2017. Over 150 international speakers and delegates are expected to attend the much anticipated event. HMT is produced by international conference producer Questex Hospitality Group and will gather senior hoteliers where they will discuss ways to thrive through generating revenue and boosting operational efficiency. 

Despite the memorable events Thailand has experienced within the past few years, tourist arrivals are expected to grow by year’s end, yet with numerous hotels opening, fierce competition abound.

Themed, “Inspire Viable Strategies to Boost Revenue and Profit for Vibrant Hoteliers,” HMT serves as a platform for senior hoteliers comprised of Corporate-level CEOs/ Presidents, COOs and CFOs, VP operations, Property-level GMs, Financial Controllers, Director of operations, and hotel owners and managing directors.2016 speaker Wayne Buckingham, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, FRHI Hotels & Resorts described the benefit of attending this event: “…you need to be flexible, you need to adapt. 

And spending time at the conference, it gives you a lot of ideas and different thinking so you can open your mind to possibilities than what you might not see every day.” Last year, over 150 delegates representing 93 organizations took part in the closed-door conference. From start to finish, delegates savored the latest topics.

“Attending the Hotel Management Thailand Summit is an eye-opener, as it shows an unvarnished picture of the “state of the industry” and flagrantly reveals that learning never should stop! If more hospitality stakeholders would take the time to attend, most of Thailand’s hostels and resorts would be in a much better shape!,” said Bert van Walbeek, Managing Director of THE WINNING EDGE.

The 2017 summit will reflect on the post-merger competitive landscapes of Bangkok and various key markets, focusing on ramifications and strategies to excel for hoteliers working for chains and independents alike. Other hot topics of concerns will also make their ways onto the conference agenda to help inspire leading hotel managers for better financial results. HMT Summit 2017 is part of the Hotel Management Asia summit Series, Asia’s only truly regional hotel management conference series. The series will rotate through Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Indonesia this year by leveraging regional experiences, insights, and innovations to address market-specific challenges.
