“We are proud to announce WTTC’s 23rd annual Global Summit will take place in Kigali, Rwanda, marking a historic milestone as the first Global Summit hosted in Africa,” said Julia Simpson, President & CEO of WTTC. “We look forward to bringing together CEO’s with world leaders to discuss the growth in Travel & Tourism in Rwanda. Known for its leadership in conservation, Rwanda is a successful innovative jewel in Africa’s crown.”
Rwanda has had a remarkable story of resilience and positive tourism development, using the industry as a facilitator for conservation efforts of its rainforests and the animals that live within them, such as the gorilla. As the WTTC begins a new phase focusing on a “Nature Positive” approach to tourism, Rwanda is a perfect location to showcase the power of the industry to help save species, ecosystems and important resources.
