The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has
confirmed “Uniting the World for Recovery” as the key theme for
its annual Global Summit, taking place in Cancun, Mexico on 25-27
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, Trip.com and Internova among others.
Juan Manuel Santos, the former President of
Colombia and 2016 Nobel Peace Prize winner, will also be taking to
the stage during the summit.
The event, which will take place in a hybrid
format, allowing those unable to travel to benefit from the
content virtually, is taking place at the Moon Palace Convention
Centre in the heart of the resort.
Carlos Joaquín González, Governor of the State of
Quintana Roo, said, “The WTTC Global Summit will be an incredible
event that will generate investment and promotion, but will also
promote social development in the destination, as well as the
empowerment of women. It will be an honour for Quintana Roo to
host so many representatives of the global travel and tourism
sector, and we are looking forward to welcoming them to Cancun.”
Hygiene and safety protocols will be in place
throughout the event, with testing and regular health checks
guided by the very latest medical and scientific advice.
