The World Travel and Tourism Council Summit is set to unite tourism leaders from across the western Hemisphere in Playa del Carmen, Mexico May 16 – 18. The event will be the first in a series of WTTC Regional Summits, and will explore commonalities as well as challenges throughout the tourism industry in the Americas while identifying opportunities for growth and collaboration.
At the World Travel and Tourism Council Summit in Playa del Carmen will be key industry figures from the public and private sectors, President Calderon, and others. Speakers include ministers of tourism from around the world including secretary Gloria Guevara of Mexico; US deputy secretary of state, Thomas Nides; Taleb Rifai, secretary-general of the UN World Tourism Organisation; executives from hotels, airlines, tour operators and travel agencies; and key opinion leaders from the media such as CBS Travel Editor Peter Greenberg.
The World Travel and Tourism Council Summit will attract delegates from across the Americas, including Central America, the Caribbean, South America and North America.
WTTC president David Scowsill explained: “Mexico is the perfect host for the Americas Summit. Mexico has rightly put tourism at the heart of its economy as a generator of employment, export income and GDP. President Calderón’s commitment to tourism is underlined by being the first to join the WTTC and UNWTO joint Global Leaders for Tourism campaign, which recognises the importance of tourism to growth and development.”
