UNWTO Special Workshop on Tourism Statistics


20 November 2014 - 21 November 2014


The UNWTO special workshop will provide an intensive and practical experience on a number of selected and highly relevant issues in applied tourism statistics:

  • Measurement of tourism for policy purposes
  • Towards a Framework for Measuring the Sustainable Development of Tourism
  • Institutional and technical requirements for successful TSA implementation

The workshop will present hands-on practices by people who have extensive experience in the subjects and consist of a series of presentations and talks which will provide sufficient time for interaction between speakers and participants.

Furthermore, it aims to assist and encourage participants, by demonstrating actual practical methodologies, to investigate new methodologies after returning to their work-places.

The target audience of this workshop are users and compilers of tourism statistics from the main relevant stakeholders. These include, in particular, National Tourism Administrations, National Statistical Offices, public and private sector tourism researchers, and regional and international organisations.

The workshop is organised by the Japan Tourism Agency (JTA), Nara Prefecture and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and will take place in the framework of the Nara Tourism Statistics Week.
