The travel industry represents 10% of global GDP & employs 1 in 11 around the world. Yet on average, only $5 out of every $100 spent by travelers remains in the countries visited.

Our industry possesses the power to impact every issue our global community faces. There is an immense amount of potential to harness the power of the travel industry & transform it into a force for good.

We can change our world through travel.

Now in its fourth year, the 2017 Travel+SocialGood Global Summit will draw together 150 innovators in the travel industry to collectively tackle a single issue facing the travel industry. Our goal is to develop concrete & actionable solutions to push the industry forward.

TSG is proud to be teaming up with Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), Sustainable Travel International (STI), Center for Responsible Travel (CREST) & Tourism Cares to present the 2017 TSG Summit.


Backed by a rapidly growing community of 10,000 changemakers in the TSG community, now is the time to push forward with our collective vision. The United Nations has declared 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism (IY2017) in conjunction with the Global Goals, an ambitious set of targets set to help solve some of the world's most pressing issues by 2030. The TSG Global Summit is an official IY2017 partner event.

We look to the Global Goals as inspiration for the issues the travel industry can help to solve, & hope the TSG Summit will inspire radical change throughout the tourism sector to help achieve these goals through both innovative business practices & consumer behavior.


Building off of the momentum & format of previous Summits, this year's event will be focused on different workshops & activations aimed at finding actionable solutions to push the industry forward. We are proud of tangible results from previous Summits, including the Ritz-Carlton's Impact Experiences, a program which has now launched in locations worldwide.
