2006 First Choice Responsible Tourism Awards

Post by inamdar1 »

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2006 First Choice Responsible Tourism Awards (organized by online travel agent, responsibletravel.com in association with The Times, World Travel Market, Geographical magazine and Conservation International).

I am a member of the judging panel for the Awards and strongly believe that they are an important opportunity to celebrate the progress being made in responsible tourism and to encourage real change in the tourism industry.

If you would like to nominate an entry, all that is required is a short (50 words is fine) email to awards@responsibletravel.com from a client of the nominee saying why they think the nominee deserves an Award. The deadline for nominations is Monday 14 August. For more information, please see www.responsibletravel.com/awards

To find out more about the benefits of winning a Responsible Tourism Award, you can read interviews with past winners here:

If you think this would be of interest to your other contacts, please do pass this on to them.

Kind regards,
Neel Inamdar
Ecotourism Business Advisor, Sustainable Landscapes
