2020 has proven a critical time for the tourism industry. With the massive disruption through the bushfires of 2019 followed by the universally devastating impact of COVID-19, there has never been a more important time to come together, draw on the collective strengths to re-assess, reflect and recover.
The Global Eco Asia-Pacific Tourism Conference, the premier event of Ecotourism Australia, will be held 1-3 December 2020 in Margaret River, Western Australia. Now in its 28th year, it’s no coincidence that Global Eco attracts the world’s leading ecotourism operators, protected area managers and tourism professionals.
A total of five applicant ECO Destinations across the country will play host to the live-streamed program of the Global Eco Asia-Pacific Tourism Conference that will be held on the ground at the HEART, Margaret River from 1-3 December.
With the constraints on travel associated with COVID-19, the online event offers an excellent opportunity for local people to access the interstate conference who may not otherwise have the time or funds to attend.
The ‘Satellite Node’ host ECO Destinations are offering attendees who cannot attend the live conference an opportunity to hear about leading practices in eco and sustainable tourism, conservation, protected area management, planning and development, marketing, Indigenous and community engagement, architecture and design, philanthropy, sustainable destination management and climate action.
Ecotourism Australia’s 28th annual Global Eco Asia-Pacific Tourism Conference will be held in Margaret River, Western Australia from 1 - 3 December 2020.

Ecotourism Australia’s 26th Global Eco Conference, held in Townsville, Queensland from 26-28 November, once again brought together the nation’s leading experts on nature-based tourism to discuss the industry’s big issues.
The year 2017 was all about sustainable tourism, designated as such by the 70th General Assembly of the United Nations. In response, public and private sector groups around the world launched innovative tourism projects and initiatives designed to raise awareness of sustainable tourism’s contribution to development and highlight the sector’s role as a catalyst for positive change.
When delegates of Global Eco Conference 2017 walked through Adelaide Zoo and heard – as if orchestrated – a zoo keeper asking a group of children "Does anyone know what I mean when I say reduce, reuse, recycle?” it was obvious the conference organisers had got the venue right.
