Learn About Sustainable Tourism from TIES at the Green Festival Expo


TIES believe that one of the best ways to unite conservation, communities, and sustainable travel is to educate tourists. That is why we are partnering with the Green Festival Expo, US’s largest sustainability and green consumer event, which attracts over 120,000 attendees. We feel that partnering with the event is a meaningful and social engagement that will assist in raising the principles of ecotourism and sustainable tourism to the world at large.


Says Jon Bruno, TIES Executive Director, “The Green Festival has been bringing consumers to a sustainable lifestyle for over 15 years. As the oldest and largest ecotourism organization, working for over 26 years, that means a lot to us at TIES. All of us at the TIES booth [in NYC] were amazed at the level of commitment the travelers displayed, and the knowledge they brought. We met over a thousand people and helped them learn to travel more sustainably.


We look forward to DC because we all found we love helping people realize their goals of traveling to the world's most beautiful places in a way that protects those places and celebrates the communities that host them. It really is a thrill to see a traveler's dream come together."


Come find us at the Washington DC event May 6th - 8th. Located at the DC Convention Center, you can hear Jon Bruno, present “Sustainable Travel Saves the World” on Friday, May 6th from 1:30 to 2:30 at the Lifestyle Pavilion.
