Description

OVERVIEW

The PATA New Tourism Frontiers Forum (NTFF) gathers the top minds in destination travel for inspiring and insightful discussions on some of the major issues in marketing and managing tourism growth to lesser-known destinations. Aligning with the advocacy theme of tourism dispersal the Forum shines the spotlight on new and emerging destinations through its choice of venue, introducing delegates to lesser-known yet attractive corners of the world. It is designed to assist communities economically in these destinations by encouraging dispersion of tourists to new frontiers.

The format is collaborative yet informative, delivered through a two-day programme consisting of a one-day
conference, networking events and a day of on-ground activities known as the Technical Tour and Tourism Marketing Treasure Hunt. The Tour provides delegates with an unprecedented opportunity to explore the region’s natural landscapes and cultural treasures.

NTFF 2017 is generously hosted by the Palau Visitors Authority.

DESTINATION & VENUE

Palau is an island country located in the western Pacific Ocean. Comprising 586 islands, from the big island of Babeldaob to the smallest rock, approximately seventy-five percent of Palau is covered in native forest and mangrove. The country contains diverse terrain, flora and fauna, and a rich variety of wildlife.

Palau is also home to a unique phenomenon – the Rock Islands. These are collections of largely uninhabited, mushroom-shaped islets located in a vast lagoon protected by fringe reefs from the fury of the open sea. They house one of the world’s greatest concentrations of coral and marine life and, in 2012, the Rock Islands’ Southern Lagoon was inscribed into the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization as a World Heritage Site.

The friendliness of Palau’s people is welcoming, but it is their immense esteem for the island’s natural resources – a respect anchored in steep tradition – that has yielded broad conservation of nature’s gis. In 2009 Palau became the world’s first Shark Sanctuary and, in the near future, a Palau National Marine Sanctuary will restrict 80 percent of Palau’s Exclusive Economic Zone from foreign fishing. The eect is profound in that Palau remains an earnestly enchanting land, a tropical paradise of untouched coral reef rife with exotic sea life.
