Director Gerente, Congresos y Turismo de Sevilla
"Seville applauds the Safe Travel initiative of the World Travel Tourism Council –WTTC, presenting the sector with a series of global protocols aimed at restarting the travel and tourism industry. It will undoubtedly serve to restore confidence to the traveler, but on everything, so that he can travel safely again. We are living an unprecedented situation affecting our life styles, business models and economic sectors, being the Meetings & Events Industry specially hit by this turmoil.
The WTTC Safe Travel protocols for Convention Centers, Meetings and Events are a consistent framework for the revitalization of our activity focused on health, hygiene, physical distancing and safety across all relevant functions. Its implementation will provide coherence and orientation to destinations and countries, but will also act as a guide for different international key players, such as, travel providers, operators, retail, different tour operators ... etc. and finally, the traveler.
For all these reasons, Seville, which is working on the elaboration of an ambitious Tourism Promotion Plan 2020/2021 that reformulates the municipal tourism policy with the purpose of recovering activity, unconditionally supports the initiative of the WTTC and recognizes its leadership and invaluable help in the recovery work worldwide in these difficult and exceptional times for the sector."
