The Global Summit brings together both senior public and private sector figures to discuss and debate issues affecting the sector in an open forum. It also raises awareness of the global, social and economic role of Travel & Tourism attracting significant broadcast and media attention from across the world. Over the last few years these have included Heads of State, over 50 Government Ministers, 600 Chairs and Chief Executives, and well over 100 members of the global media. Exclusively for WTTC Members and senior Member company executives local to the host market, this event provides an effective platform to meet, share and network with senior industry peers.
In 2019, the Summit will be centred on the theme of ‘Changemakers’, harnessing the 500th anniversary of the departure of the first circumnavigation of the world from Seville and the world-changing impact of that achievement. We will inspire delegates with a future vision of Travel & Tourism and the changemaking individuals and ideas which will make it happen. Entrepreneurship, creativity, innovation, diversity and inclusivity will be at the core of the conversation.
