We are pleased to announced that Steven Samblis, IC Punch Media, Inc. CEO has been invited to join the leaders of the world’s Travel & Tourism industry at the 13th World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Summit, which takes place in Abu Dhabi 9-10 April 2013.
WTTC is the world authority on Travel & Tourism. It promotes sustainable growth for the industry, working with governments and international institutions to create jobs, to drive exports and generate prosperity. Its Global Summit is the world's highest-level gathering of Travel & Tourism executives, government representatives and international media, who work together to unlock our industry's significant potential for sustainable worldwide development and economic growth.
This year, the theme of the event is “A time for leadership” so it is fitting that President Bill Clinton, Founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation and 42nd President of the United States will deliver the Global Summit keynote address. President Clinton served the United States for eight years during a time of unprecedented prosperity and change. Now, President Clinton is a powerful voice for progress around the world as he shares his unique insights and observations with audiences around the world.
Other speakers at the Summit include more than forty other leading public figures, including Sir David Frost, British journalist and media personality, Daryl Hannah, American actress and activist, and Ian Goldin, University of Oxford Professor of Globalisation and Development. The Chief Executives of over twenty Travel & Tourism companies will be speaking and available to the Media, and over five hundred senior private and public sector executives will be attending. A full list of confirmed speakers can be found on the WTTC website.
The Global Summit will be held in Abu Dhabi - an emirate rich in heritage and culture and yet with a modern and luxurious tourism infrastructure. The Global Summit venue will be the luxurious new Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, with a Gala Dinner taking place at the magical Emirates Palace hotel.
The Global Summit is the world's highest-level gathering of Travel & Tourism executives, government representatives and international media, working together to unlock our industry's significant potential for sustainable worldwide development and economic growth.
