A strong potential for income generation.
BLTA was created in 2008 to develop, train, and empower Brazil as a desirable destination in the international market.
Tourism for the luxury segment requires planning, organization, environmental awareness, and massive investment in staff training, to drive the development of the entire sector. Projects to promote artisanal techniques, food production, training of bilingual guides, biologists, chefs, therapists, and other occupations mean more autonomy for professionals, who become leaders in their communities. In addition to offering training, a BLTA hotel operator employs, on average, three times as many employees per room compared to standard tourism. That is why its positive impact is so relevant.
The work of education for children and families is essential. As individuals gain a sense of cultural belonging, they start to value local memories, knowledge, and activities. This is how regions become important hubs that generate jobs in various industries and attract high-level tourism that values both quality and authenticity.
Brazil’s immense environmental vocation for tourism encourages preservation of natural areas to ensure the attractiveness of the destination. This movement starts with BLTA hotels that establish conservation areas (RPPNs) on their own properties to make sure wildlife remains untouched in their surroundings.
Like nature, the well-being of communities and visitors needs to be rigorously preserved. Through intensive work with hotels, communities, government agencies, and other entities, BLTA works to ensure that the sustainability of the entire travel ecosystem in Brazil is, more than ever, an inexhaustible force for generating and distributing income. This is crucial for the recovery of the industry in Brazil.
