Dubai to host global travel and tourism summit next month

Dubai: The 8th Global Travel and Tourism Summit, a World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) initiative, will be held in Dubai from 20th to 22nd April at the Madinat Jumeirah. Congress Solutions International (CSI), the official summit co-ordinator, is putting the finishing touches to the event. « Dubai is one of the world’s fastest-growing tourism hubs. As a major, world-class city that is strategically located at the crossroads of East and West, Dubai can be easily accessed from any point in the world and hence is an ideal venue to host the summit, » Frederic Bardin, senior vice president of Congress Solutions International, said. The summit is the industry’s most high-profile event that attracts chief executives of the world’s foremost travel and tourism companies as well as senior government officials and influential media from around the globe. The Dubai summit will focus the industry’s attention to three global issues: preserving the world’s natural and cultural assets; the role of travel and tourism in generating employment and wealth; and harnessing growth.
