ASEANTA Headquarters – Putrajaya, Malaysia – The ASEAN Tourism Association is to set up a website to pay tribute to hundreds of industry veterans and stalwarts for laying the foundations of what is now recognised as the region’s fastest-growing economic sector.
From ministers to hoteliers, tour operators to convention organisers, expatriates to Aseanites, legions of men and women with vision, dedication and commitment played critical roles in building up travel & tourism. They designed from the ground up the products and policies, dismantled impediments and bottlenecks, and planned and executed major marketing campaigns that raised ASEAN tourism to illustrious heights.
To be named “ASEAN Travel & Tourism Hall of Fame,” the project will mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of ASEAN. Spearheaded by the ASEAN Tourism Association, the region’s largest private sector grouping, the website is scheduled for launch at the January 16-20, 2017, ASEAN Tourism Forum in Singapore, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of ASEAN.
