The fifth edition of the P3 – Planet, People, Peace International Conference for Sustainable Tourism will take place from September 23rd to September 25th, 2015, in the National Auditorium at the Children’s Museum, with the participation of local and international speakers who will share their experiences and knowledge on social development, innovation, marketing and sustainability in general as a new way of doing business.
The Conference is organized by the Cámara Nacional de Ecoturismo y Turismo Sostenible (National Chamber of Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism, CANAECO), with the support of the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo (Costa Rican Board of Tourism, ICT). The International Conference: Planet, People, Peace(P3) is Costa Rica’s only international event on ecotourism and sustainable tourism. Its name represents the focus of reconfirming our commitment to redirect the essence of its People back to the Planet, sharing our experience as a country of Peace.
“Our objective this year is to bring together world leaders in sustainability to share strategies, best practices, challenges and opportunities in a way that enriches not only the tourist industry, but also businesses in other sectors and public and professional institutions, creating a networking environment which fosters strategic alliances and innovative projects, while additionally strengthening Costa Rica’s image as a sustainable tourist destination,” said Nathalie Carballo, Executive Director of Canaeco.
