WTTC Global Summit Held in Hainan

The 14th annual World Tourism & Travel Council (WTTC) Global Summit took place April 24-25 in Sanya in the Hainan Province of China. With the world’s second largest tourism economy, China was a logical location for WTTC’s annual event, where North American audiences met to discuss the travel industry’s future as well as to discover the beauty of Hainan.

Situated at the southernmost tip of China, Hainan is renowned for its tropical beach environment (which some call “China’s Hawaii”) and incredible resorts. The WTTC Global Summit highlighted these incredible surroundings, as well as China’s role in international tourism. A recent report from WTTC projected that China’s tourism contributions to the global economy are expected to overtake that of the United States by 2023. According to the WTTC report, Hainan specifically has the potential to become a huge world-class tourism destination by 2020.

WTTC’s vote of confidence and the hard data prove that China is a hot-spot destination for 2014 and beyond.
