WTTC Reveals Saudi Arabia as Upcoming Host for its 22nd Global Summit

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), which represents the global travel and tourism sector, announces that its 22nd Global Summit will take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, at the end of 2022.

WTTC’s annual Global Summit is the world’s most influential and travel and tourism event. Saudi Arabia has been leading a new global approach to ‘redesign tourism’ and this summit in Riyadh will see industry leaders gathering with key government representatives to drive support for the sector’s ongoing recovery, moving it to a more safer, resilient, inclusive and sustainable future.

The event in Saudi Arabia will follow the next highly anticipated Global Summit which is taking place in Manila, Philippines, from March 14-16, 2022.

Speaking from the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Julia Simpson, WTTC President & CEO said, “Since the very beginning, when the pandemic brought international travel to an almost complete standstill, Saudi Arabia has shown its total commitment to our sector, ensuring it has remained at the forefront of the global agenda. It has been instrumental in leading the recovery of a sector which is critical to economies, jobs and livelihoods around the world. For that we are grateful and want to recognise their incredible efforts by bringing the global travel and tourism sector to the Kingdom next year.”
