The Regional Programme for the Middle East has the honour to announce that a new UNWTO Regional capacity building workshop on Adventure Tourism will be held in Abha, Saudi Arabia from 5 to 9 May 2012, in cooperation with the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities.

Within the tourism sector, adventure tourism has grown on average 17% per year in 2009 and 2010. Numerous factors, such as the desire for new cultural experiences, together with the increasing global interest in the environment, as well as the aspiration for a healthier lifestyle, has encouraged tourists to seek a more active experience in their travelling. This workshop focuses on the development of Adventure Tourism management strategies at destination level providing theoretical and practical elements that can be used by policy makers, government officials and industry professionals for the development of their work.

All applicants are kindly requested to confirm their participation by filling out the application form that can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SaudiArabia2012, as soon as possible and no later than 17 April 2012.
