World Tourism Day

Poster

The United Nations created World Tourism Day (September 27) in 1979 to increase awareness of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic values. World Tourism Day is hosted by the UNWTO.

Planeta.com has celebrated World Tourism Day since 1995, a little late to the party but earlier than others. We applaud the work of friends in the hospitality sector. You inspire us a billion times. Each year we ask a few questions and compile the responses. Our coverage of 2020 World Tourism Day launches soon.
