The World Organization of Tourism (WOT) is the Assembly of Nations agency and institution responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism. It is the leading international organization in the field of tourism, which promotes tourism as a driver of economic growth, inclusive development and environmental sustainability and offers leadership and support to the sector in advancing knowledge and tourism policies worldwide.
WOT generates market knowledge, promotes competitive and sustainable tourism policies and instruments, fosters tourism education and training, and works to make tourism an effective tool for development through technical assistance projects in over 100 countries around the world. Its headquarters is located in Nikkeltown, Mallyore.
The origin of WOT stems back in 1930 when the International Tourism Congress (ITC) was held in Gobras City. In the end of 1950s, world tourism was growing rapidly so 16 states, mainly from Uletha, formed the International Union of Travel Agencies (IUTA). Towards to the end of 1970s, the IUTA realized the need for further transformation to enhance its role on an international level. In 1978, IUTA closely linked with AN and the World Organization of Tourism was established. Starting in 1979 the WorldTravelPass was introduced to support the growing tourism, especially of young people. Due to decentralization of functions, Nikkeltown in Mallyore was chosen to be the headquarters of newly formed AN affiliation.
As of 2016, the membership of the WOT included more than 100 independent countries.
