Global Summit will exhibit how travel is the solution for a healthier future

The World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) 22nd Global Summit opens its doors today to the biggest event in history in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The global tourism body’s highly awaited Global Summit, which is the most influential Travel & Tourism event on the schedule, inaugurates today in Riyadh with approximately 3,000 people anticipated to be present.

With more international business leaders and foreign government delegations attending than ever before, addressing media from across the globe, Julia Simpson, WTTC President & CEO, announced that the event taking place this week is set to break all records.

Simpson also said over the next five years, WTTC affiliates are set to invest more than $10.5 billion in the Kingdom.

Presenters taking to the podium include Former UK Prime Minister Theresa May, the first to hold two of the Great Offices of State and UK’s second woman Prime Minister following Margaret Thatcher.

Former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon will also address the delegates. During his tenure, he advocated sustainable development and gender equality at the top of the UN program. He was also instrumental in obtaining the Paris Climate Agreement, rallying global leaders behind climate action – a historic accomplishment for global diplomacy.

Actor, filmmaker, and Golden Globe winner, Edward Norton, will also address the Global Summit. An advocate for renewable energy and an ardent supporter of the African Wildlife Foundation, Norton will participate in an exceptional Q&A session.

Julia Simpson, WTTC President & CEO said: “Our Global Summit will be our biggest ever in terms of business leaders, international media, and governments from around the world’’.

Simpson added that their event is bringing together many of the world’s most powerful Travel & Tourism business leaders to discuss and secure its long-term future, which is crucial to economies, jobs, and livelihoods from across the globe.

His Excellency Ahmed Al-Khateeb, Minister of Tourism for Saudi Arabia, said that the Kingdom is proud to welcome the 22nd WTTC Global Summit to Riyadh.

With more government ministers and world-leading CEOs than ever before, it will be a true display of the future we want to create. A future founded in public and private sector partnership, with sustainability and innovation at its core, Al-Khateeb added.

‘‘Travel for a Better Future’’ is the theme for the event that will focus on the value of the sector, not only to the global economy but to the planet and communities across the globe.
