About the Summit
The 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.
Earlier this year, at the close of the 15th WTTC Global Summit in Madrid, Phillip Jones, CEO, Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau and Sean Donohue, CEO, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, announced the prestigious Summit to be held in Dallas in April 2016. Jones and Donohue, together with Tom Klein, President & CEO, Sabre Corporation, sit on the 2016 WTTC Global Summit Host Committee.
The Summit will provide the perfect opportunity for the US to showcase their immense progress in travel facilitation policies for travelers, 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 inter-agency coordination can be delivered, alongside engagement with the private sector for highly effective partnerships and collaboration.
Attendance is complimentary and by personal invitation only. Registration to attend the Global Summit will close when the capacity limit has been reached. Proceedings will be streamed live through this web site.
