Artisans Angkor at the UNWTO World Conference on Tourism

Artisans Angkor at the UNWTO World Conference on Tourism

IMG_3825
In February 2015, Artisans Angkor had the great honor to be chosen to decorate the main pavilion which hosted the UNWTO/UNESCO World Conference on Tourism and Culture which took place at the hotel Le Méridien d’Angkor in Siem Reap.

On this occasion, over 900 participants from 100 countries, including over 45 Ministers and Vice Ministers of Tourism and Culture, came to Siem Reap to attend this conference, which was chaired by the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia himself, H.E. Mr. Hun Sen. This was the very first time that Ministers of Tourism and Culture, as well as experts and stakeholders from both sectors, came from all over the world to discuss together new models of partnerships between tourism and culture.

Besides decorating the main pavilion, Artisans Angkor also promoted authentic Cambodian handicrafts by letting artisans give a demonstration of their talents in carving, silk weaving and lacquer painting to the international visitors, and by exhibiting various craft and silk products that were made in our workshops.
