WTTC to Hold First Regional Summit Meeting in Cancun
The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) will hold its first Regional Summit on May 16 to 18 in Mexico. The Regional Summit will be hosted in Cancun, Quintana Roo, by the Mexican Ministry of Tourism.
The WTTC Americas Summit will cover North, Central and South America and the Caribbean. It will be held immediately after the T20 Ministers Meeting, which will be held on May 14 and 15 in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. In partnership with the Mexican Secretaría de Turismo (SECTUR), WTTC will invite high-level delegates from the public and private sector to debate a range of global travel and tourism issues in the Americas regional context.
T20 Ministers, Ministers of Tourism from the region, NTOs, and private and public sector companies will participate in the Summit. In August 2011, WTTC implemented a strategy to launch a series of regional events and summits around the globe. The strategy will create new events designed to deliver the objectives outlined in WTTC’s mission and provide significant value to the event’s hosts and partners.
