Burt Woolf addresses
50+ tourism leaders
October 16, 2008; BANGKOK: The Thailand Chapter of the Pacific Asia Travel Association hosted Burt Woolf as the keynote speaker at its quarterly meeting at the Bangkok Convention Centre. Woolf is the Founder and Chief Principal of the Center for Quality of Life and Tour Leader for World-for-World Travel to Thailand. Addressing a record attendance of 70 leading tourism industry and government executives, Woolf spoke on "Integrative Travel: A New Vision for Tourism Development."
In his presentation, Woolf suggested a new orientation to tourism development and a new role that weaves the travel and tourism industry directly and comprehensively into the fabric of community and economic life of resident destinations.
Drawing on his 20-year professional career in rural destination development in the U.S. and his recent personal travel experiences in Thailand, Woolf offered a new strategic framework for tourism development that re-focuses private sector industry leaders and public agency officials on sustainable modes of visitation -- such as World-for-World Travel to Thailand -- that contribute to the sustenance, growth and well-being of the destination, rather than on offerings that consume or damage increasingly depleted and fragile local resources (natural, built, cultural and social).
