WTTc’s Global Summit will be hosted in Metro Manila in-person, with a global audience joining virtually.
The 21st Global Summit by World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) will take place in Manila, Philippines, from April 20 to April 22. The summit will make Philippines the world centre of decision-making in the recovery of tourism.
“Our Global Summit is the most influential Travel & Tourism event in the calendar. We are looking forward seeing our members, industry leaders and key government representatives gather in Manila in April to continue our efforts in safely restoring international travel,” says Julia Simpson, WTTC President & CEO.
“As countries around the world begin to unlock the door to travel, we have taken the decision to reschedule our Global Summit by just a few short weeks. This will enable more international participants to join us in Manila and help guide and lead the sector as we head towards economic recovery,” she adds.
Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, Secretary of the Philippines Department of Tourism, stated that the WTTC Global Summit will be a significant opportunity for the industry to showcase the preparations that put in place for the eventual reopening to international visitors.
