MRTI is delighted to announce our upcoming plans for the inaugural Myanmar Responsible Tourism Awards. The Awards are a way to remind everyone involved in the tourism industry that with growth comes increased responsibility to ensure tourism in a sustainable manner in all its three pillars: economic, social and environmental.
The Myanmar Responsible Tourism Awards will identify and celebrate innovation and responsible tourism best practices . We aim to inspire the tourism industry by what is possible to achieve with responsible actions, recognize businesses and individuals that demonstrate best practices and encourage competition and sustainability across the tourism industry.
The Awards will honor tourism industry leaders and innovators in six categories: Best Responsible Tourism Accommodation, Best Responsible Tourism Operator, Best Responsible Tourism Destination, Best Responsible Tourism Communication/ Marketing, Best Responsible Tourism Education Program and Best Community Involvement in Tourism.
Entries for the awards will be accepted through to 30 August 2017. Winners will be announced by MRTI on an official ceremony.
