UNWTO TOURISM 2019 AGENDA
This year, job creation and the promotion of entrepreneurship are the overarching theme for United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) as it focuses on Education, Skills and Jobs inline with the 2019 World Tourism Day (WTD) theme titled “Tourism and Jobs: A Better Future for All”.
UNWTO positions Tourism in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Agenda by linking this year’s theme to SDG 8 which promotes “sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive and decent work for all”
The Tourism Summit 2019 is inline with this year’s UNWTO theme by discussing the various businesses one can venture into to become a Tourism Entrepreneur.
I was recently on a podcast with Mofolusade Sonaike of Mumpreneur.ng during her “Strike the Anvil” show at U-RockMedia’s studio.
We discussed the topic, “The Business of Tourism in Nigeria” and I explained why I am hosting the Tourism Summit.

I also had the privilege of being a guest on a WhatsApp platform called Nigeria Tourism Lovers which consists of young Tourism Enthusiasts. I was asked many incredible and insightful questions on “The Role of Entrepreneurship in Tourism”.
One of the questions they asked was:
“CAN YOU HIGHLIGHT SOME BUSINESSES YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS CAN GO INTO IN THE TOURISM INDUSTRY?”
And this was how I started my response…
I went ahead to mention some tourism businesses that they can start with a little or zero budget, based on the niche they pick. It is important to note that if you don’t have a niche when venturing into ANY business, you won’t stand out and you might end up going on roller coaster rides.
Tourism is so broad! There is always something for anyone that wants to start a business in this space. These are the things the speakers will be discussing in the Tourism Summit 2019.
