They are equipped to present their projected events with creative elements prepared by a highly dynamic, fresh and young team that knows how to remove the ‘dull’ from conferences while making sure that the learnings are insightful and the conference is something remembered as enjoyable, euphoric and inspirational.
This year, the main focus of the conference was: “A 360° Panorama of Creative Tourism Design and Strategies for Destination Development”. They continue to move forward with putting into additional perspective a certain direction into tourism innovation which is the fundamental of ‘creative tourism design’ and its creative marketing infrastructure and strategies. Creative tourism design is slowly being tapped by even the biggest brands in the tourism industry globally because it is unconventional, it is something out-of-the-box and it is a multitude of ideas put into action. The goal of this conference is to offer insights, innovative information and knowledge that would build innovative minds, inspire change and provide an additional learning curve for students and to add to the future teachings of educators as they continue to bridge with professionals in the industry – knowing that their role is important in uplifting the tourism industry in the Philippines and abroad.
The following are the resource speakers who gave their experiences and knowledge throughout the conference. Mr. Anton Diaz, the founder of ‘Our Awesome Planet’ and an online entrepreneur. His presentation involved how to effectively market a destination through the means of blogging and how to maintain a source of credibility to sustain a steady and growing audience and an influential approach to become a reputable tourism website and source.
Mr. Mohamed (Founder) and Mr. Peyman-Al Awadhi (Co-Founder) of ‘Peeta Planet’ brought in an inspiring story on how they innovated tourism in Dubai through social media and their creative works they call #socialtravel. Their presentation involved a global perspective which is a bridge of culture from a middle-eastern perspective.
