The Bangkok Manifesto, created January 2019 in Thailand, consists of 10 statements on the nature, purpose, and direction of incentive travel. This was a work of strict collaboration, the content crowdsourced and confirmed with active participation from our delegates in this process over several days at our annual conference.
Now it is YOUR turn to participate in the creation of The Vancouver Manifesto, building upon the conversations started in Bangkok around sustainability, destinations, team work, and social responsibility. Join us in our Open Space Forums as industry leaders open the floor to hear from YOU as you play your part in shaping the future of the incentive travel industry.
