The 23rd Annual Global Eco Conference will be staged on Rottnest Island, Western Australia 17 - 19 November 2015.
Announcing the Rottnest Island venue, Ecotourism Australia CEO, Rod Hillman said the sustainability initiatives on the Island and Western Australia’s leading work in marine ecotourism would make for an excellent location for Global Eco.
The conference was last held on Rottnest Island in 2001 in the wake of September 11 and the collapse of Ansett Airlines. "Delegate numbers were down but it was was the most amazing conference. Delegates used unconventional meeting rooms (like the picture theatre with its canvas chairs); were issues with push bikes, and did a circumnavigation of the Island," said Global Eco Convenor Tony Charters.
Ecotourism Australia Director, Tony Charters, has been recognised for his expertise in the sustainable tourism field on a Global stage and will be acting as a Judge for the 2015 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).
On Sunday, Ecotourism Australia held its first meeting of the new Board elected at its recent Annual General Meeting and reconfirmed Mr. Rick Murray, of Northern NSW, as its Chair and Mr. Michael Collins, of Perth, WA, as its Deputy Chair.
