The PATA Adventure Travel and Responsible Tourism Conference and Mart (AT&RTCM) will return to Pokhara, Nepal in 2011. The AT&RTCM will take place at the Fulbari Resort and Spa, 7-11 February 2011.

Under the theme ‘Social Give Back: Doing Well by Doing Good’, the conference will focus on current issues on sustainable and responsible tourism such as ‘Greening of Travel and Tourism’ and ‘Experiential and Indigenous Tourism’. ‘Extreme Adventure Holidays’ will also be discussed.

High profile speakers in sustainable and responsible travel will gather at the event. Notable names include those of Arlene Samen, CNN Hero; Brian Mullis, Sustainable Travel International; John King, Global Tourism & Leisure; Mina Gabor, International School of Sustainable Tourism; Nyima Tashi Sherpa, Kopan Monastery Village; Renton de Alwis, writer and social activist and Steve Harbert, Mountain Kingdom.

Participants will be encouraged to ‘do well do good’ by contributing to the local community in Pokhara. Three options will be offered during the offsite session, including visits to a government school, Phewa Lake or an old age home.

Prachanda Shrestha, CEO, Nepal Tourism Board, said, “It’s a great privilege for us to have the AT&RTCM return to Pokhara after the last event in 2001. Indeed, Pokhara is a perfect venue for this event as it has been the centre of adventure activities in Nepal, draped by high mountains of the Annapurna Range, and flanked by the turquoise Phewa Lake. I truly believe that an event of such international stature will definitely help us in promoting Nepal as a tourist destination for ‘All Seasons’.”
