Question 1:

International conference on Tourism and Handicrafts


The World Tourism Organization in cooperation with government of Iran Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) will organize the International Conference on Tourism and Handicrafts on Tehran, Islamic Republic of Iran from 13-15 May 2006. Tourists can enjoy the host country most when they take home good quality handicrafts and fond memories of their host countries. Yet, the linkage between handicrafts and tourism is not properly defined in many tourist destinations. Thus, lucrative opportunities to realize job creations and to earn valuable foreign exchange resources are lost as well as the promotion of the host destination. WTO and ICHTO recognize the importance of handicrafts in tourism development and agree that handicrafts and their linkage with tourism needs to be fully identified and developed not just for Iran but for the benefit of all countries concerned. In this regard, the International Conference on Tourism and Handicrafts is the first of its kind to be organized in the Islamic Republic of Iran where high quality handicrafts are produces from generation to generation. Handicraft is an integral part of the tourism experience for international tourists. As known to all, the richness of handicrafts does not only create financial opportunities for local artisans and culture but also provides great potential for tourism development in general. However, the connection between tourism and handicrafts has not been fully recognized and developed. There are key issues which need further discussion: How can the lucrative opportunities to increase earnings locally as well as earn valuable foreign exchange currency be improved? How can the tourism and handicraft sectors work together to promote cultural assets of the host destination? How can tourism improve its support of artisans and their communities in poverty alleviation? How can the negative economic and cultural impact of tourism on vulnerable local craftsmen and their communities be addressed? The objective of this conference is to bring together experts who can define better the links between crafts and tourism and to propose ways to enhance the magnetism between the two. (a). State three examples of handicraft items being used for the promotion of the host destination. (b).
