Eco Hotel Restart Summit to focus on Middle East recovery

The region is considered an example for the rest of the world to follow in terms of eco experiential travel 

The team behind the Eco Hotel Summit digital events has launched a Restart Summit to look at how our priorities have changed as we emerge from the pandemic and how different thinking can make the world a better place.

The event will look at the Middle East as a place of inspiration for eco experiential travel and an example the rest of the world to follow. 

Eco Hotel Summit co-organiser and publisher of International Glamping Business Steph Curtis-Raleigh said: “There is currently a massive growth in eco-tourism in the Middle East, which is recognising the value of its cultural and natural heritage as a tourist attraction.

“With countries such as Saudi Arabia moving away from oil production and focusing on promoting itself as an environmentally-friendly tourist destination with its Red Sea Project, we see a seismic shift in focus in the region.” 

The two-day online Restart event will take place 17 and 18 June and will include content on investment, with projects looking for funding requested to send in pitches. They may be invited to pitch live to investors during the event. In addition, the second day will include a series of practical workshops on subjects such as reducing plastics, designing an eco-hotel, digital marketing, productivity and more.

Curtis-Raleigh added: “We believe there will be a new dawn for tourism in the Middle East and it will be a very exciting destination for people of all ages and tastes. There is an opportunity to create tourism from the ground up, in a responsible way, that will protect the culture, the communities and the wildlife.”
