WTTC Global Summit 2021

Global Summit 2021

The highly-anticipated WTTC 20th Global Summit, organised in partnership with the Government of Quintana Roo, was held in Cancun, Mexico on 25-27 April.

WTTC's annual Global Summit is the most influential Travel & Tourism event in the calendar, where the highest-level industry leaders meet with key government representatives to take action on the biggest and most important issues across the international agenda.

This year, the Global Summit explored the challenges ahead & provided a platform for the recovery of the sector. The Summit was successfully held following months of meticulous planning and implemented with rigorous health and safety protocols and measures to ensure the safety of all attendees – which included almost 1,500 PCR and Antigen tests being undertaken during the event.

More than 600 delegates from over 40 countries attended the Global Summit, and COVID-19 tests were taken by delegates upon arrival, during, and upon departure from the hugely successful event.

Of those attending, 99.8% returned with a negative result, with only two individuals testing positive on arrival and declined admittance within the ‘summit bubble’. Just one individual tested positive prior to departure, but due to enhanced health and safety protocols, such as mask wearing and physical distancing, no further positive cases were reported.
