What is it that makes Chiang Mai unique as the city of creativity, culture, and heritage; the melting pot of tourism for decades? With recent talks on the changing facets of the tourism industry; the effects of mass tourism, challenges on preservation of several heritage sites, to the city's pending status on being a UNESCO Heritage City - it is time to open up the conversation for re-alignment of priorities for the city and lay the ground work towards 'sustainable tourism.'

Sustainable tourism and the preservation of the city's cultural heritage both go hand-in-hand. But one cannot achieve this alone - there are several stakeholders in the mix; residents, businesses (both tourism and non-tourism), local authorities, local and international tourism companies alike. Together, we are all part of Chiang Mai's sustainable future.

If you're curious about how businesses, entrepreneurs, and everyone in the mix can join hands in making Chiang Mai a liveable 'tourism' destination, come join the discussion!

  • Find out how entrepreneurs can support the cultural/heritage ecosystem in Chiang Mai
  • Share ideas on how the UNESCO Heritage City and similar schemes can bring together different stakeholders to work towards a more sustainable approach for city development
  • Connect with entrepreneurs & professionals from wide-ranging industries in the North - linking business groups from the international and local chambers of commerce, the Federation of Thai Industries, to the startup community

Come connect on Thursday 12th March, 16.30 hrs onwards at Hai Ya Art Venue, Old Chiangmai Cultural Center (map).

This is event is supported by Green Trails and Old Chiangmai Cultural Center.
