The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has revealed that the 21st Global Summit will take place in Manila, Philippines, from April 20-22, 2022, just a month from its original March date.
The Summit will be hosted in Metro Manila in person and is set to be attended by WTTC members, industry leaders, and key government representatives, with a global audience joining virtually.
Julia Simpson, WTTC president and CEO, said: “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.
Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, secretary of the Philippines Department of Tourism, said: “The WTTC Global Summit will be a significant opportunity for us to showcase the preparations that we have put in place for our eventual reopening to international visitors.
“Tourism has always provided us with endless opportunities. The reopening of our destinations and borders amid the pandemic is crucial to sustaining the livelihood of the millions who depend on travel and tourism.”
Further information such as key speakers will be announced shortly.
