PCMA signs code of conduct to combat human trafficking

The Professional Management Convention Association (PCMA) has signed the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism, a voluntary set of business principles that companies and organisations in the travel, business travel and tourism industries can implement to prevent and eradicate the trafficking and exploitation of children.

“As an industry currently worth over US$150 billion, we have the power of advocating and raising awareness of the human trafficking epidemic, and have a stronger voice for the vulnerable, whose opinions and opportunities have been taken away from them”, said PCMA Foundation Chair David Peckinpaugh.

The initiative forms part of the association’s new vision that business events drive social positive transformation.
