Congratulations on World Tourism Day

We would like to congratulate all of you, our beloved users, on World Tourism Day that is held annually on September 27. It’s kind of our professional holiday and it’s also your holiday, as you are people who travel and travel wisely.

The purpose of World Tourism Day is to raise awareness among the global community of social, cultural, political and economic value of tourism. The date September 27 was selected for a reason - it marks the anniversary of the adoption of The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) Statutes on 27 September 1970 and also marks the end of the high season in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of the season in the southern hemisphere.

In 2014 World Tourism Day is devoted to Tourism and Community Development and focuses on the ability of tourism to empower people and provide them with skills to achieve change in their local communities. Travel more, travel with MAPS.ME!
