Youth for Tourism Conference 2019

October 19, 2019 - 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

UP Film Institute, UP Diliman

In recognition of our shared home, the Youth for Tourism Conference or TourCon 2019, with its theme “Protecting Our Cultural Heritage,” is set to launch on October 19, 2019 at the UP Film Institute in the University of the Philippines-Diliman.

Landmark events such as the Destination Marketing Plan and the Event Management Plan Competitions will continue to provide an opportunity to showcase the participants’ creativity and expertise in pitching new ideas and events that would center on using tourism in preserving our pride of place and culture. While the Research Info-graphics Poster Presentation and the Travel Feature Writing Competition highlight the knowledge and ingenuity of the students to produce scholarly research and features that would bring tourist destinations to life and revitalize the tourism industry.

The biggest surprise yet is a pioneering competition making its debut in this year’s TourCon: Mx Turismo 2019, the country’s first ever all-gender pageant. An advocacy-based pageant, the competition seeks to search for the next Tourism Ambassadors of the country in promoting sustainable development.

The event is headed by the UP Asian Institute of Tourism Alumni Association Board of Trustees and co-presented with the Local Government of Cavite. It is also endorsed and supported by the Commission on Higher Education.
