- Feb 19, 2014Hello Green Travel Groupies
FIRST A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: As you may know, I've just published the 11th
annual (can you believe it) Sustainable Tourism Report. It's massive in all
respects of the word. See http://bit.ly/1fbDLRl and http://bit.ly/NA0tHM.
It's currently on offer at £150 - but I would really like reviews. So I'm
offering a limited number at a ridiculously low price of £50 to Green Travel
Group members if you will agree to write a 50 word review within 14 days.
Obviously I can't afford to make this offer for ever - so you'll need to
contact me asap: valere@... and make the reduced-rate purchase
by 26 February.
A glimpse of the BIG news - in Milan last week, I realised what a tourism
opportunity Expo2015, a new prime minister (Renzi - Italy's own Tony Blair)
and a tiny economic upsurge will make (let's say another 20million extra
international tourists - let's hope it is sustainable (legacy?). And a
phrase that will be in the news a lot 'Green Tourism Futures' brought to us
via the GreenGlobe, Davos climate change, WTTC and UNWTO maestro G. Lipman.
Plus $half a billion IHG gets from green - great!
