World Travel & Tourism Council heads to Seville for Global Summit 2019

The World Travel & Tourism Council 2019 Global Summit will take place in Seville, Spain, on April 3rd-4th and will be hosted by Ayuntamiento of Seville, Turismo Andaluz and Turespaña.

The event will have the theme of ‘Changemakers’.

It will be the first time that WTTC is extending the invitation to attend the Global Summit to a wider group of senior industry professionals.

Tourism leaders will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the departure of the first circumnavigation of the world, which set out from Seville, while shaping the future of the sector.

This will be the first Global Summit to which industry professionals and people interested to hear from the leaders will be able to attend by paying a recovery fee.

Until now, the summit has been by invitation only, encompassing WTTC members and travel leaders.


Next year thus marks the first year that a limited number of guests from across the sector will be able to join.

Gloria Guevara, WTTC president, commented: “The WTTC Global Summit is the principal event where the global public and private leaders of our sector meet.

“We are happy to be back in Europe and especially in beautiful city of Seville, where we will celebrate the 500 years since the first circumnavigation, while we define and shape the future of our sector and recognise the ideas which will make it happen.

“Anyone wanting to know what the future of our sector looks like should come to the WTTC Global Summit.”

As always, the WTTC Global Summit attracts best speakers of the highest calibre from the private and public sectors.
