The conference theme this year is ‘Exploring the Secrets of the Blue Continent’, examining a broad range of issues, challenges and opportunities that face travel and tourism industry leaders throughout the Asia Pacific region.

It is a very popular destination with a tempting year-round tropical climate, a fascinating cultural background and a history that stretches back to the time of the first settlements by the Chamorros, Guam’s indigenous people, some 4,000 years ago.
