International Adventure Tourism Conference, Laggan, Dumfriesshire 18 June

Bruce Poon Tip, founder of G Adventures, the global adventure travel company which champions sustainability and responsible tourism is to address the practitioner day of the 7th International Adventure Tourism Conference, led by the Adventure Tourism Research Association. The conference organisers aim to bring together leading academics, industry practitioners and educators in the fabulous setting of Lagan Outdoor Activity Centre, overlooking the Solway coast, to learn about and debate burning issues in nature-based and adventure tourism, outdoor recreation and outdoor learning. TMI is a partner in the conference’s practitioner day, a new addition to the programme which was sparked by one of the conference organisers attending the Hot Topic last year. The conference runs from 17- 23 June, with the practitioner day taking place on Tuesday 18 June. TMI members can book the practitioner day at a discounted rate of £65 plus VAT.

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Cassie Stewart at the University of Plymouth and Daymer Skye Eshelby, University of Derby, who are joint winners of this year’s David Hughes Memorial Award for student placement reports, and receive complimentary tickets to one of TMI’s annual events. The CPD Group and TMI Executive felt whilst Cassie’s and Daymer’s submissions presented somewhat different perspectives, they were equally deserving of the Award.
