UNWTO – WTCF Workshop China
2 September 2017

We are pleased to inform you that, at the kind invitation of the Tianjin Tourism Administration (China), the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) will organize a Technical Workshop within the context of the Joint UNWTO – WTCF City Tourism Performance Research, 2 September 2017 in Tianjin, China.

Considering “Urban Tourism” as an economic activity with a high potential to stimulate local economic growth because of its complementarity with other economic activities, its contribution to GDP, job creation, foreign exchange and services exports, it is essential to monitor the tourism performance in urban destinations and to identify the areas related to “Destination Management”.

The UNWTO Secretariat in collaboration with WTCF (World Tourism City Federation) launched an initiative to showcase the good practices on “tourism performance” in several urban destinations. The workshop will discuss the results of the research conducted and will aim to provide recommendations to the cities on the selected key performance areas.
