Organized by The International Ecotourism Society (TIES), the Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism Conference (ESTC) is North America’s largest and only conference focusing on sustainability in the tourism industry. A leading international multi-stakeholder meeting place, the ESTC brings together innovative minds from across the industry to discuss practical ideas and solutions that inspire positive changes. Advancing policies and practices benefiting businesses and communities, the ESTC helps reinforce the roles of tourism in building a more sustainable future.
Co-hosted by Travel Portland and Travel Oregon, the ESTC 2010 (September 8-10, 2010) will be held in Portland, Oregon, a leading U.S. city that has been consistently rated “the most sustainable city” in the country. Bringing together 500+ business leaders, industry professionals and community stakeholders, the ESTC 2010 will feature dynamic sessions, public forums and social functions that offer eye-opening insights into the latest on sustainable business strategies and unparalleled networking and knowledge-sharing experiences.
We will be participating in a panel discussion we helped put together, consisting of Philippe Cousteau, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Dave Parker and a member from Greenpeace USA. The topic of the panel is how to build win win partnerships for your business and community.
