The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has offered its support to the International Maldives Travel Market (IMTM) in regard to its 2020 virtual event, which is set to be held on the 16th and 17th of November 2020 (updated on 21st October 2020).
The United Nations specialized agency entrusted with the promotion of responsible, sustainable, and universally accessible tourism, is to support IMTM as they strive towards their common goal of restoring the tourism and travel industry to a state of resilience and sustainability in order to withhold against the ongoing strains inflicted on the industry by the global pandemic.
The Maldives being a long time member of UNWTO, allows both parties to efficiently disseminate relevant information through their current activities to provide support to the sector.
The UNWTO prioritizes improving tourism competition and sustainable tourism development among many of their other objectives, through knowledge creation and exchange, human resources development, and optimal use of environmental resources.
The IMTM 2020 virtual event aims to Reconnect, Revive and Grow the travel industry by providing international buyers, including tour operators and agencies, a platform with the opportunity to conveniently connect and conduct business with local accommodation providers, such as resorts, hotels, and guest houses, located in the Maldives, during such strenuous times.
