The World Travel Market Responsible Tourism Programme
The WTM programme which was launched in London in November 2007 and which runs annually has now been extended to WTM Latin America and WTM Africa. At World Travel Market each November Harold Goodwin designs a programme of Responsible Tourism panels, a debate and a Stephen Sackur interview which precedes the presentation of the World Responsible Tourism Awards on World Responsible Tourism Day. From November 2016 the WRTD roundtable interview will be conducted by Aaron Heslehurst BBC News and Fast Track
