The GGN Executive Board, taking into account the positive results of the Geoparks presence in International Tourism Fairs in 2019 recognizes as priority to prepare the GGN participation in Tourist Fairs in 2020.

The GGN ExB supports the participation of UNESCO Global Geoparks in Tourism fairs and encourages Geoparks in their Collective participation through the GGN Stands in ITB Berlin (4-8 March 2020) and FITUR Madrid (22-26 January 2020), as well as in other International Tourism fairs in other countries i.e. China, UK, Italy, Japan etc.

The need of coordination of these activities will be achieved through the GGN Working Group on Tourism.

The GGN ExB asks all UNESCO Global Geoparks to reply the possibility to participate in 2020 in International Tourism Fairs 

• either BY Geopark Stand

• or BY Country/Region stand.
