Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 16, 2014
WebsiteAlive, a leading provider of online communication solutions, has entered into a new partnership that will make its live chat, click-to-call, concierge, and transaction products more available and more profitable for clients in the tourism industry.
WebsiteAlive has demonstrated its dedication to businesses in travel and tourism by becoming an Affiliate Member of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). Headquartered in Madrid, Spain, UNWTO is the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable, and universally accessible tourism. As the leading international organization in the field of tourism, UNWTO promotes tourism as a driver of economic growth, inclusive development and environmental sustainability, and offers leadership and support to the industry, helping to advance knowledge and tourism policies worldwide.
UNWTO’s members include 156 countries and 6 territories, as well as more than 400 Affiliate Members representing the private sector, educational institutions, tourism associations, and local tourism authorities.
“UNWTO works to raise awareness among decision makers and the public at large about the whole tourism story and what the sector entails for economies, societies and sustainable development,” says Yolanda Perdomo, director of the Affiliate Members program at UNWTO. “[It also works] to promote sustainable tourism policies which have an impact on all those involved in tourism—from destinations and companies to tourists themselves.”
UNWTO Affiliate Membership connects WebsiteAlive with a global alliance of businesses and non-governmental organizations in world tourism, all with a common goal of promoting responsible tourism that contributes to the world’s economic and social development.
With this new partnership, WebsiteAlive benefits from the World Tourism Organization’s global reach, status, and knowledge; but it also improves the competitiveness of every other member by making WebsiteAlive’s online communications technology available to them at a discount.
“Becoming an Affiliate Member of UNWTO puts WebsiteAlive at the pulse of global tourism policy debate and crafting,” says Perdomo. “This helps to align WebsiteAlive´s corporate work with global social and corporate responsibility in tourism. These values, upheld by UNWTO, are increasingly demanded by customers, thus contributing to an overall enhanced tourism experience.”
