The International Ecotourism Society, affectionately known as TIES, was founded by 1990 in the United States. As the oldest and largest ecotourism society in the world, we have over 15.000 active members in over 200 countries.
As The International Ecotourism Society, we organize an annual conference, the Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism Conference (ESTC) and Business to Business Networking Event that is a widely considered the most important conference in ecotourism. The first ESTC took place in 2004, and this year we will hold the 16th ESTC in one of the best ecological destinations of Turkey, the beautiful town of Tokat. The conference will take place in July of 2021.
We will host important ecotourism speakers from all around the world, all of whom are chief authorities in their field. We will learn from their expert opinions on the recovery on the sustainable tourism industry.
We will also organize educational FAM trips in and around Tokat, one of the best ecological cities of Turkey, where we will visit all natural and evergreen farms and villages that produce apples, pears, onions, garlic and many other organic products.
Attendees will have an option to extend exclusive educational trips further to many different regions and destinations of Turkey.
Our goal is to raise awareness to ecotourism and sustainable development practices and to share these and develop them further with our attendees.
Join global expert speakers and the highest standard ecotourism tour operators to be brought under one roof as an additional value to the sustainable industry growth through ecotourism and sustainable tourism conference and networking event by TIES.
“ESTC will conform to the highest safety standards and procedures as defined by ICCA, and will hold all attendees and exhibitors to the strictest standards.“
