Travel&Tourism – do we deliver on our promises?

( London, UK – 25 April, 2007 – As the highest level gathering of Travel & Tourism leaders draws closer, the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) reveals the main topics that will be addressed at the Global Travel & Tourism Summit, taking place in Lisbon from May 10 to 12.

WTTC’s global advertising campaign around climate change has stimulated much debate. To read more visitwww.globaltraveltourism/environment.

Whilst the environment is a key concern for the Travel & Tourism industry and beyond, there are other key issues to address; chief among these are the growth agenda and the impact that the industry has on communities.

The Global Travel & Tourism Summit will create an open discussion forum to go beyond to critically examine the nature of the industry’s impact on individuals, communities and nations. Travel & Tourism leaders will address whether the industry really does deliver on its promises or whether it is stronger on rhetoric than on reality.

Infrastructure in most of the world’s major Travel & Tourism economies is facing serious capacity challenges and functional constraints. It is simply incapable of coping with accelerating global demand. A select group of international government officials will explore how governments are responding to the opportunities presented by Travel & Tourism growth. Amongst the government leaders joining the debate will be the Honourable Prime Minister of Namibia, Minister of Economy & Innovation of Portugal, Minister of Tourism of Greece and Minister of Civil Aviation of India.
