GX-plained.

GX is a feel-good celebration of travel and the profound impact it can have on the communities we travel to. It’s about bringing our communities together, from all four corners of the world, in the name of Community Tourism.

Together, we’ll explore the must-see sights of our host destination (GX 2023 was in Peru!) and learn from the who’s-who of the travel industry on how we can use tourism to drive positive change in the world.

Here’s what you can expect at this multi-day event: a world-class speaker series, access to community engagement projects, live entertainment, top-notch meals, and, wait for it, an incredible party (or two!) you’ll be hard-pressed to forget. GX is, after all, about changing the world and having a damn good time while you’re at it.

Planeterra is the world’s leading Community Tourism organization. With an ever-growing network of Community Tourism partners around the world, Planeterra ensures economic opportunities are created, places are protected, and cultures are celebrated through travel.

For the past two decades, G Adventures and Planeterra have been at the forefront of the movement to use travel as a force for good. By breaking down barriers and supporting communities to earn and income from tourism, we have shown that travel can have a positive impact on both the travellers and the local people alike.

Planeterra is also setting sights on new ventures such as Project 300. This is our newest mission to uplift over 300 communities through tourism. This means we’ll be tripling (Yes, tripling!) the number of community enterprises we support. From Mexico and Nepal to Iceland and Japan, Project 300 will, one day, reach communities all over the world.

FAQs

Still got questions about GX? We’ve got answers.

At G Adventures we’ve always believed in the power of Community Tourism and its impact on our world. In partnership with Planeterra, GX is bringing together all of our communities for the first time ever to celebrate the positive impacts community tourism can present. Planeterra helps local organizations and communities use tourism as a catalyst to improve people’s lives, protect their natural environments, and celebrate their culture. In recognition of Planeterra, we will all be supporting this cause and helping uplift communities through tourism with Planeterra, all while attending the most epic event on the planet.

It’s two-fold: to connect hundreds of people from across the entire tourism community, and to raise funds for Planeterra — all while having the time of our lives!

Depending on your role in the tourism industry, you’ll be invited to participate in a multi-day trip where you’ll witness the power of community tourism in action.

Well, we aren’t there just yet! Let us know you’re interested in attending and we’ll have the right people at G Adventures and Planeterra contact you with more information.

The agenda for the event will be different for each group attending. If you are registered to attend, keep an eye out for an email that will share the schedule and key event details.

We’ll have different speakers throughout the event depending on what group you’re in. Regardless, everyone will have the chance to see Bruce Poon Tip take the stage along with a few other key speakers. More to come on that later, but keep an eye on our speakers page for more information.

Right now, GX is an invite only event but if you are interested in attending you can let us know here and we’ll be in touch.
