Event to be held in Africa for first time
Rwanda’s capital of Kigali is to host the 2023 World Travel & Tourism Council global summit.
It will be the first time the event has been held in Africa.
Rwanda, home of the International Gorilla Conservation Programme, will showcase the power of sustainable tourism to protect biodiversity and create thriving communities, according to the WTTC.
Next year’s venue was disclosed as the organisation ended its largest global summit with more than 3,000 delegates attending the event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
WTTC president and chief executive Julia Simpson said: “We are incredibly excited that Rwanda will host our next global summit in 2023.
“An amazing country famous for its conservation work, Rwanda is building its reputation as a must-see destination.”
