World Travel and Tourism Council Event

The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) was founded in 1991. It’s the only organization that brings together all the main players in the travel and tourism sector, which allows them to speak with one voice before the governments and other international entities.

The WTTC’s general assembly will hold a global meeting on April 18 and 19 in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Maribel Rodríguez, executive of the WTTC, said that this event is considered one of the “most important at the tourist level,” which is why he visited Uruguay: to promote the presence of tour operators and government authorities of the country in this great event.
