PHIST is the first of its kind, an innovative event rallying the hotel industry and its stakeholders to discuss environmental sustainability and community benefit. With over 500 delegates, the event will be held on Monday, September 24, 2018 at JW Marriot Resort & Spa Phuket, with partners and other stakeholders also organizing affiliate events and meetings in tandem. The day will have an exhibit hall and offer attendees a mix of short expert panels and quick topical talks, covering areas of destination development, ocean health and impacts, corporate hotel sustainability, community tourism, and global trends on sustainability and masstourism. In addition, longer, technical workshops and roundtables will be held to convene the wider audience of hotel staff. Speakers will be mostly from international organizations and their regional representation from outside Phuket, but all gearing their content on the discussion for Phuket to apply best practice and opportunity.
