Our summit brings together both senior public and private sector figures, including Heads of State, over 50 Government Ministers, 600 Chairs and Chief Executives, and well over 500 members of the global media, to discuss and debate issues affecting the sector in an open forum. It also raises awareness of the global, social and economic role of Travel & Tourism attracting significant broadcast and media attention from across the world.
