The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has announced its annual Global Summit will now be held in Cancun, Mexico from 21-23 April with a major event in San Juan, Puerto Rico to be held later this year.
Gloria Guevara, president and CEO of WTTC said: “We remain strongly committed to supporting Puerto Rico’s amazing comeback story as seen in their record-breaking year in tourism last year. Although the island was ready to welcome us with open arms this April, despite the recent seismic activity in the southern region, reallocating resources to continue this great momentum is the right thing to do in order to further boost tourism. We are looking forward to hosting an event in Puerto Rico later this year.”
“This switch to Cancun will enable us to host the WTTC Global Summit focused on the opportunities and challenges facing our sector in 2020 and beyond, which will help to grow tourism further. The 20th Global Summit will benefit and showcase not only Mexico, but the wider regions of the US, Latin America and the Caribbean,” she added.
