The United States’ first UNESCO Creative City
The conference is a forum for identifying economic opportunities, improving skills, and developing best practices for creative tourism programs. Broadly defined as engaging visitors in a place’s culture through active participation, creative tourism provides the possibility for economic growth to destinations willing to offer travellers a chance to express themselves by becoming personally involved with a community’s heritage.
Tourism Professionals, Destination Managers, Community Leaders in the Creative Economy, City and Urban Planners, Cultural Experts, Creative Entrepreneurs, Educators, Creative industry Developers, and Artists will all benefit from the skills and best practices learned during this unique participative conference.
