Reset 2022 will reboot tourism sustainably

RESET 2022 Cofounders Nicki Page and Leo Downer

World leaders in business and government in addition to executives to academics and operators to suppliers will be in London this September for Reset 2022, a sustainability, tourism, and hospitality summit, where high-level commitment meets practical, tactical tools to reset tourism sustainably.

To be held on September 16 at the Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill, the second edition of the day-long in-person and online event, Reset 2022 will see an all empowered and equipped gathering thrash out a plan to reverse the negative impact of tourism and hospitality development and operations, said the organisers.

The forum is set to accelerate a new planet-positive position for the world’s rebounding travel and hospitality sector, they added. 

“We look forward to hosting a powerful, eclectic party of innovators and authorities responding to HRH Prince Charles’ plea to put a real business value on nature and maximise it now,” stated the organiser TLC Harmony Co-founder Nicki Page.

“Let’s be clear. Sustainable tourism practice is no longer a choice. To ensure the future of the travel and tourism industry and more importantly, the planet that we call home, we need to create sustainable destinations within a new paradigm that protects and regenerates nature, so it is good for people, planet and prosperity,” stated Page.

The event sparks meaningful discussion of the global crisis and solutions from pivotal angles, led by: El Salvador’s Vice President Dr Felix Ulloa Jr; Former UNWTO Secretary General Dr Taleb Rifai; Red Sea Development Company Deputy Chief Environmental Sustainability Officer Dr Omar Al Attas and UAE Green Building Council Chair Ali Al Jassim.

The others taking part include Sustainable Hospitality Alliance CEO Glen Mandziuk; SmartLedger Chief Commercial Officer Meike Krauscheid and DSE (Design For Sustainable Excellence) Studio Co-Founder & CEO Somayeh Rokhgireh.

Panel and presentation sessions cover interesting topics - ranging from why and how to build and operate sustainable hotels and destinations to the growing power and influence of women consumers making sustainable tourism and wellness in hospitality decisions.

Voices include PKF Hospitality Senior Managing Director and Head of UK & Ireland Adam Maclennon, Professor Willy Le Grande and Lamington Group Managing Director Robert Godwin, Travwell Creative Director Phil Clark, and Zen Bali owner Mahendra Shah, said the organisers.

TLC Harmony Executive Director and Co-Founder Leo Downer lays out new, free measures and systems for businesses that empower their customers to turn their footprints green as they travel.

A global sustainable tourism solutions company, TLC Harmony is a specialist in sustainably led tourism development, policy and commercial marketing services for governments and the private sector since 1998.

Welcoming the big players of the industry to the event, Page said: “Good for business, the planet and people, Reset 2022 is a day of unmissable panels, captivating discussions, hard talk and news covering sustainability in travel and tourism globally, and how real change is possible to run business sustainability.”

Reset 2022 will tap into the strength and energy of organisations like the World Travel and Tourism Council, Birdlife International, the Green Building Council (Central America) and SalvaNatura and also an online broadcast to ensure inclusivity and speed in delivering important information around the world.
