Sponsorship Opportunities

Outlined below are the sponsorship opportunities available for the Innovators Think Tank: Climate Change & Coastal Tourism, organized by the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST) and Puntacana Ecological Foundation and held at the Puntacana Resort & Club.
 
We offer several sponsorship options, and each package can be tailored to your needs. The Think Tank’s participants are a select group of experts and practioners in the areas of climate change adaptation/mitigation, coastal tourism, marine protection, development, finance, and international development agencies, NGOs and government agencies. Information will also be shared with CREST’s entire network of over 14,000. The sooner you sponsor the more exposure you will receive! The result of the Think Tank will be a publication on best practices in coastal and marine tourism in the age of climate change, in which the sponsors will be credited. This publication, with its prescriptions and strategies for how various sectors of the tourism industry need to accommodate to the realities of climate change, will serve as a guide within the tourism industry.

Please review the sponsorship packages outlined here, and contact Samantha Hogenson, shogenson@responsibletravel.org, 202-347-9203 Ext. 414, to become a sponsor or to discuss sponsorship options suitable for your company or organization.
