London, UK: The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), which represents the global Travel & Tourism private sector, and the Government of Quintana Roo in Mexico, have announced that the 20th Global Summit will take place later in the year.
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.
The Global Summit 2020 will take place in Cancun later in the year, giving the Travel & Tourism sector time to recover from the current Covid-19 outbreak and its impact.
Gloria Guevara, WTTC President & CEO, said: “We stand in solidarity with governments, countries and organisations which are being affected by Covid-19 and look forward to hosting our Global Summit in the Autumn. This will provide a global platform to discuss the sector’s recovery and future plans.”
Carlos Joaquin, Governor of Quintana Roo said: “Cancun and the State of Quintana Roo are continuing to plan a full schedule of events, meetings and conventions against the global backdrop of Covid-19. We have no Covid-19 cases but stand ready to support those around the world.
We look forward to hosting the 20th WTTC Global Summit in the Autumn and ensuring it is the most successful Global Summit ever”.
