The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) will be holding the 2020 edition of its annual Global Summit in Cancun.

Originally due to be held in Puerto Rico, WTTC felt that with a mission to promote sustainable growth for the sector globally, it would be appropriate to change the location of the Global Summit given what is best for Puerto Rico at this time. The financial resources that had been set aside will instead be focused on impactful, consumer-facing campaigns and marketing efforts that strongly promote Puerto Rico’s “open for tourism” message and drive immediate visitor numbers to the Island.

Travel & Tourism is one of the leading sectors stimulating economic growth and employment worldwide. In 2017, the global Travel & Tourism sector grew at 4.6%, faster than the global economy as a whole (3% growth during 2017) and generated US$8.3 trillion in GDP (10.4%) and 313 million jobs. Travel & Tourism is a significant contributor to Spain’s economy, accounting for 14.9% of GDP (EUR$172.9bn) and 15.1% of jobs (2.8 million jobs). Spain’s travel sector enjoyed a very successful 2017, overtaking the US to become the second most visited country in the world. 

Public and private sector leaders from outside and inside the industry and government ministers from all continents will attend the Summit to explore and challenge current received wisdoms and their relevance for the near future. They will look at the tourism industry from a new angle and define a new proposition that goes beyond the economic agenda, identifying how businesses can benefit from this new way of thinking.
