wttc2The World Travel & Tourism Council announces that the 2016 WTTC Global Summit will be taking place 6 – 7 April 2016 in Dallas, Texas at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel. The WTTC Global Summit was last held in the United States in May 2011, in Las Vegas, Nevada.


David Scowsill, President & CEO of WTTC, said: “We are extremely pleased to confirm the dates for our upcoming WTTC Global Summit, which will bring together top global leaders from private sector companies within the Travel & Tourism industry to engage with key public sector leaders. Industry leaders from across the world should make sure they save these dates.

The Summit will provide the perfect opportunity for the US to showcase their immense progress in travel facilitation policies for travellers, both in their visa management and entry/exit procedures. Their pronounced growth in both international tourism receipts and visitors has continued their leading stature as the world’s largest Travel & Tourism economy. This Summit gives the Obama Administration the global platform to show how successful interagency coordination can be delivered, alongside engagement with the private sector for highly effective partnerships and collaboration.”
