Farm Tourism Conference

We are pleased to share with you

The 5th Farm Tourism Conference and Festival

Farm Tourism is the business of attracting visitors and travellers to farm areas, generally for educational and recreational purposes that encourages economic activity and can provide both farm and community income. The consciousness of healthy living, coupled with a growing sense of wanderlust and thirst for new experiences has led people to rediscover agriculture through farm tourism. This is a welcome change in an industry where the average age of Filipino farmer is 56 years old.

The passage of RA 10816: Farm Tourism Development Act of 2016 has further spurred interest in the industry for farmers, landowners, local government officials, community development organizations and businessmen.

The International School of Sustainable Tourism (ISST) continues in its mission to bring farm tourism in the Philippines to new heights through the 5TH FARM TOURISM CONFERENCE AND FARMER'S MARKET FESTIVAL.

This year, we are one with the United Nations in celebrating 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development (#IY2017). In this year's conference, we highlight farm tourism's role in attaining the UN's Sustainable Development Goals through:

  • Inclusive and sustainable economic growth
  • Social inclusiveness, employment and poverty reduction
  • Resource efficiency, environmental protection and climate change
  • Cultural values, diversity and heritage
  • Mutual understanding, peace and security

Conference Topics

The conference proper will include lecture-discussions, panel sessions and open floor Q&A sessions designed to provide a venue for participants to learn from resource speakers. Coffee networking breaks held in the morning and afternoon serve as additional opportunities to connect attendees with each other.
