Villa Roma Resort, Callicoon, NY Monday, April 7-Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Who should attend?
The Green Tourism Conference will be a first-of-its-kind opportunity to unite food service and lodging facilities, tourism agencies, “eco” product suppliers and recreational activity businesses from the Catskills to the Poconos around the common cause of promoting eco-tourism. The region’s proximity to two major metropolitan areas position it as the #1 up and coming destination for tourists seeking 'green' travel and outdoor recreational opportunities. The main goal of the conference is to increase tourism revenue by facilitating collaboration throughout the region, spanning Delaware, Greene, Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster counties of New York; and Wayne, Monroe and Pike counties of Pennsylvania.
The Green Tourism Working Group is a public- private sector collaboration group initiated and chaired by Sue Currier of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy and Evadne Giannini of HospitalityGreen LLC, and is comprised of tourism associations, economic development organizations, state agencies and local foundations from five counties of New York; Delaware, Greene, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster and three counties of Pennsylvania; Wayne, Monroe and Pike. The interstate collaboration has been initiated in order to increase regional revenue through sustainable tourism initiatives.
