Peru will host the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Americas Summit, to be held in Lima on 10-11 September 2014.

To be held in partnership with MINCETUR, Peru’s tourism ministry, the Americas Summit will bring together the public sector and leading private sector organisations from North, Central, South America and the Caribbean to engage in a constructive debate on a range of global Travel & Tourism issues in the Americas regional context. Speakers will include CEOs from regional and global hotel companies, airlines, cruise lines, tour operators, travel management and online agencies; Ministers of Tourism; high level representatives from the NGO sector and opinion formers from the world of finance, business and the media.
