"A Global Conversation"

The Santa Fe International Conference on Creative Tourism will be held September 28 - October 2, 2008 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, 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 travelers 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.
