The conference will be held under the Responsible Tourism initiative and will aim to highlight Kerala as a gender-inclusive tourism spot. The state will also introduce new initiatives and plans to make the tourist places of the state more female-friendly and safe. The state plans to amend its tourism sector before the conference and rectify the issues at grassroots level.

The tourism board of the state will aim to work with local bodies to identify the issues faced by travellers, especially women travellers, and address them in time for the conference. Aid from civic bodies and UN Women programmes will also be taken in consideration. Kerala Tourism had also organised a Global Responsible Tourism Summit back in February 2023.
