The Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality will celebrate United Nations World Tourism Day (WTD) on Tuesday 27th September in an event that highlights best practices in making tourism more accessible.

Tourism for All - Promoting Universal Accessibility' is the theme of WTD 2016. In keeping with this, the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality is bringing together 'Aqaba Centre for Special Education', 'Jordanian Association for Sociality Tourism', and 'Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority'.

The event will review best practices in making tourism more accessible. It will identify opportunities for strategic collaborative working between academics and practitioners in public, private and voluntary sectors with interests in making tourism more accessible. We will also explore how tourism students can engage with voluntary activity in support of initiatives to make tourism more accessible. The program will include presentations and discussions from the faculty members in the University.

The event will include a 'City Sightseeing Tour' for some people with disabilities from 'Aqaba Centre for Special Education'.
