World Travel & Tourism Council postpones April conference

The World Travel & Tourism Council has postponed its global summit in Mexico until the early autumn.

It said delaying the event, which was due to take place in late April, would give the travel and tourism sector time to recover from the coronavirus outbreak and its impact.

WTTC president and CEO Gloria Guevara said: "We stand in solidarity with governments, countries and organizations which are being affected by Covid-19 and look forward to hosting our Global Summit in the autumn. 

"This will provide a global platform to discuss the sector's recovery and future plans."

Carlos Joaquin, governor of Quintana Roo said: "Cancun and the State of Quintana Roo are continuing to plan a full schedule of events, meetings and conventions against the global backdrop of Covid-19. We have no Covid-19 cases but stand ready to support those around the world.

"We look forward to hosting the 20th WTTC Global Summit in the autumn and ensuring it is the most successful Global Summit ever."
