Sharjah, a cultural emirate in the United Arab Emirates, is gearing up to host a multitude of experts, government officials, and pioneers in the tourism sector. The forum's focus on sustainability aligns perfectly with the UAE's national commitment to environmental conservation, particularly relevant this year designated as the "Year of Sustainability."

The SITTF 2023 agenda features a series of panel discussions, engaging workshops, and insightful presentations. Attendees can expect to delve into the core principles of sustainable tourism, exploring topics like eco-friendly practices, responsible waste management strategies, and minimizing the industry's environmental footprint.

A highlight of the forum will be a keynote address by Abdalla bin Touq Al Marri, the UAE's Minister of Economy. Industry leaders like Khalid Jasim Al Midfa, Chairman of the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA), and Dr. Nawal Al Hosany, Permanent Representative of the UAE to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), are also slated to participate in discussions.

The forum will explore the impact of sustainable tourism on local communities. Experts will discuss how responsible tourism practices can empower local economies by creating jobs and fostering cultural preservation. Additionally, the forum will examine the role of technology in ensuring the sustainability of the travel and tourism sector.

The 10th SITTF is expected to play a crucial role in shaping the future of travel. By bringing together key stakeholders and fostering dialogue on sustainable practices, the forum aims to pave the way for a more responsible and environmentally conscious tourism industry.
