The ABCC hosted the first of its introductory forums held in the run up to ABES2023 on the afternoon of 15 March. The event providing a platform for various companies and investors to discuss and share their opinions on the issue of sustainable tourism.

Delegates braved the enormous traffic hazards to listen to speakers from the Embassies of Bahrain and Algeria who explained the ambitious tourism developments in their respective countries and the tremendous investment opportunities available to UK firms in numerous projects at various planning stages. The speakers were joined by UK experts on sustainability and climate change who were eager to share their insights into the expanding eco-tourism market and its great potential for growth.

The event was chaired by Mr Abdeslam El Idrissi, ABCC Deputy CEO & Secretary General, who outlined the ABCC’s exciting programme of events that will culminate in the third ABES on 20 November.
