Advisory Board

The Role and Structure

For the purpose of this conference, the organisers have set up a high level ITIC Advisory Board to take appropriate decisions with regard to the organisational aspects of the conference: themes, institutional involvement, key decision-makers, resource persons, opportunities for networking, venue, logistics etc.

The ITIC Advisory Board is chaired by Dr Taleb Rifai, former Secretary-General of the United Nations World Tourism Organization. He leads a team of tourism experts from across the globe to discuss the modus operandi of the conference with a focus on rolling-out a roadmap for the future of this industry amidst the prevailing world conditions: economic uncertainties, conflicts, natural calamities, climate change, terrorism, changing paradigm for tourist safety and security, and more. Consequently, technical interventions by sector specialists in the conference will be duly screened by the Board with a view of ensuring high-level discussions for a high calibre audience.
