Plans are underway for the highly anticipated second staging of the Global Tourism Resilience Conference in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Taking place over two days on February 16 and 17, the conference will include panel discussions, networking opportunities, presentations, and debates on matters of building resilience in tourism. Experts will gather to collaboratively discuss issues that are central to future-proofing travel and tourism to various disruptions moving forward.

“Global tourism resilience will once again take center stage with key experts on building resilience in the industry,” said Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Centre (GTRCMC) founder and Jamaica Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett.

“As tourism destinations continue to recover, it is critical that resilience be a focus of planning and development to future-proof the industry from any potential shock.”

Some of the topics that will be discussed include ‘Building Tourism Digital Resilience,’ ‘Building Tourism Infrastructure Resilience,’ and ‘Women in Tourism Resilience’ among other critical areas of tourism resilience.

Among the speakers will be the Prime Minister of Jamaica, the Most Honorable Andrew Holness, and the Secretary-General of the UNWTO, HE. Zurab Pololikashvili

As part of the conference agenda, Global Tourism Resilience Day will be celebrated on February 17 for the second time, recognizing the official resolution by the United Nations in February 2022 to observe the day each year. There will also be a tourism resilience awards gala to celebrate individuals and organizations who have contributed to building tourism resilience globally.

“I am truly pleased that tourism resilience will be top of mind over the two-day period where we will get more insights into how destinations can better equip themselves in the face of disruptions. COVID-19 proved that tourism resilience is even more urgent, and we must act on this,” said Executive Director of the GTRCMC, Professor Lloyd Waller.

More than 200 delegates are expected to be in attendance in the heart of Jamaica’s bustling tourism capital.

“We are preparing to give attendees a warm Jamaican welcome, which will leave an indelible mark. There is truly no better backdrop than Jamaica to host this mega conference,” said Director of Tourism, Donovan White.

The first Global Tourism Resilience Conference was held at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica in February 2023. (https://www.travelpulse.ca/news/impacting-travel/jamaica-set-to-hold-2nd-global-tourism-resilience-conference)
