Global Eco Asia Pacific Tourism Conference 2017 at Sanctuary Adelaide Zoo

Ecotourism Australia’s Global Eco Asia Pacific Conference will be held in Adelaide, South Australia on the 27-29 November 2017. Global Eco will be staged at the state-of-the-art Sanctuary Adelaide Zoo Conference Centre located in the city centre.


It brings the world’s leading speakers on ecotourism, sustainability and responsible tourism. It brings all the key players to the table – tourism operators, protected area managers, tourism organisations, indigenous bodies and researchers. Increasingly Global Eco is at the hub of partnerships between protected area managers and the tourism industry – across infrastructure and investment, quality, conservation and land management.

It facilitates exceptional business networking and has consistently created significant business benefits for delegates. With 25 years of experience under its belt, Ecotourism Australia’s members have been at the cutting edge of ecotourism development at a global level. Global Eco Asia Pacific is a business-to-business and business-to-government event focused on practical and applied ecotourism.

It is a clearing house of ideas, innovation and best practice. It uses keynote speakers to open up discussions across the key thematic areas and concurrent theme streams to develop these discussions. There are specialised masterclasses and workshops to enable delegates to get the very most out of their investment. Global Eco is content rich. It seeks the maximum interaction of delegates and it maximises opportunities for networking and technical tours.

Keynote speakers include the following:

Bharat Basnet, Chairman of the Nepal Explore Group; Elaine Bensted, Chief Executive, Zoos South Australia; Brendan Bevan, Manager of Arkaba Conservancy & the Arkaba Walk; and more.
