Join the World Travel & Tourism Council virtually at its Global Summit next week – live from Cancun, Mexico

April 22, 2021 Destination Global No Comments

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), which represents the global Travel & Tourism private sector, is delighted to invite you to virtually join its highly anticipated Global Summit, under the theme “Uniting the World for Recovery”, from April 26-27.

WTTC’s annual Global Summit is the most important Travel & Tourism event in the calendar.

It enables the highest-level industry leaders to meet with key government leaders to act on the biggest and most important issues across the global agenda.

The WTTC Summit is the most important global platform for leaders of the sector to set the path forward, share the future of travel with the world and accelerate the sector’s recovery.

WTTC will showcase how we can use this experience to adapt to the post-COVID-19 era to lead the global Travel & Tourism sector back to recovery and restore millions of jobs and livelihoods, which have been thrown into turmoil since the beginning of last year.

Speakers from all corners of the globe will be taking part, including business leaders from Carnival Corporation, Hilton, Marriott, Meliá, Airbnb, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, Expedia Group, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Royal Caribbean Cruises, and Internova, among many others.

Former President of Colombia and 2016 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Juan Manuel Santos, will also be taking to the stage during the Global Summit.

WTTC will announce a number of key Travel & Tourism initiatives at the Global Summit. These will focus on pressing issues, such as sustainability, the digital agenda, the social impact of Travel & Tourism, and women’s empowerment.

The global tourism body will launch its ‘Women Empowerment Declaratory’ at the Global Summit.

The women’s initiative will focus on defining and influencing policies which can help empower women from all walks of life and ensure recovery efforts reach women around the world. The initiative will also work to shrink the gender gap in Travel & Tourism.

The Global Summit will be the first major live event in the Travel & Tourism sector, with world-leading hygiene and safety protocols in place throughout to ensure the health and safety of every participant. Testing and regular health checks, guided by the very latest medical and scientific advice, will also be in place to ensure the safety of delegates is paramount.
