Agenda and Activities
Pre-conference Workshops (optional)
Pre-conference workshops bring to the delegates one-day intensive trainings and coaching on research-related topics. With the workshop speakers who are prominent professors and editors of SCOPUS-indexed journals as well as successful entrepreneurs, this will be good learning opportunities for the students, academics, and emerging researchers. Delegates can choose to participate in either one of the following workshops:
Opening and Closing Ceremonies
ICRTH2023 will be officiated by official from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Indonesia). Delegates will be welcomed by a cultural performance followed by welcoming remarks from the conference co-chairs and opening speeches from the leading figures in the global tourism sector. During the closing ceremony, IPB University and Bogor authority will have their commitment declaration to responsible tourism initiatives.
Keynote and Expert Dialogues
Three keynote dialogues will be delivered by prominent speakers to discuss about the contemporary issues of responsible tourism and sustainable development. The topics are as follows:
KEY1: Responsible Tourism: Building Partnerships for A Green Future
KEY2: Sustaining Tourism through Cultural Heritage Conservation in Asia
KEY3: Biodiversity Conservation and Environmental Wellbeing
Concurrent Blocks – In-conference Workshops (WOR)
In-conference workshops are designed to maximize the interactions between the speakers and the delegates. The sessions will feature speakers from government agencies, private sectors, and young entrepreneurs to share what and how-to-do related to responsible tourism initiatives and business.
Concurrent Blocks – Industrial Seminars (SEM)
Industrial seminars will host practitioners and professional speakers to share their thoughts and works that will lead to fruitful discussions as well as a good opportunity for delegates to network. The seminars will follow the following sub-themes:
Concurrent Blocks – Academic Presentations (ACA)
Academic presentations will present the research outcomes of both seasoned and young/emerging researchers. This session welcomes students to present their research works as well. While physical sessions do not limit the number of presentations, only 40 academic extended abstracts will be accepted to present virtually based on a first come first served basis.
Bogor Botanical Gardens and City Tour
Delegates who attend the conference physically will be brought on a 3-hour exploration trip. They will not only visit Bogor Botanic Gardens (an important evidence in the historical development of science in Indonesia) but also engage in other types of community-based tourism activities.
Responsible Tourism Fieldwork (optional)
The 3-days-2-nights fieldwork consists of a visit to Mount. Gede Pangrango National Park and the surrounding areas including engagement with the community members. Beside discussing responsible tourism during the conference, the fieldwork is a good avenue to put responsible tourism into practice and build connection and networking among the delegates and community.
As addition to our commitments to green investments, we will not provide notebooks, printed brochures or flyers, nor plastic bottled water for the delegates. Instead, each delegate will receive a conference kit comprising conference booklet and other information in a flash disk as well as a tumbler. Drinking water dispensers will be placed at convenient corners for delegates to refill their glasses or tumblers.
The conference will include social events to maximize networking opportunities:
A gala dinner to welcome conference delegates
A designated area for networking during the conference
Booths displaying local products and services
