The World Travel and Tourism Council open requests for host cities

The
World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has opened the tendering process to find
the host city of the 12th Global Travel and Tourism Summit, which attracts over
1,000 senior government and industry
professionals from the travel, tourism, hospitality, aviation and cruise
sectors.

“As
well as strong interest from around the world from companies coming to do
business in a host destination, the summit attracts broadcast and
media coverage that can equally
benefit the host,” says president and CEO of WTTC, Jean-Claude
Baumgarten.

Earlier this year, the WTTC announced Las Vegas as the host of the 11th edition,
which is scheduled for 17-19 May 2011.

WTTC
says it was a very topical choice as the US Travel and Tourism industry looks
forward to the impact of the US Government’s recently-announced Travel Promotion Act on
marketing and promoting the destination abroad.

The
organisation has issued a request for proposal (RFP) for cities around the world
to submit applications to host the 12th Summit in 2012. The RFP and the supporting
documents must be returned by 1
September 2010 to WTTC’s events director, Tony
Thompson.
