  • The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel in London has been the venue for more than 20 years for tourism leaders to meet for the WTTC Cocktail on the second evening of the World Travel Market.
  • Tonight was the night, after 2 years, when tourism leaders were able to come together, forget about masks, and catch up.
  • UNWTO was represented by Anita Mendiratta. The Secretary General remained absent.

For more than 20 years, friendship and business started or continued in the boutique 5-star hotel close to Greenfield in London, the Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel.

The World Travel and Tourism Council every year during the World Travel Market invites members, ministers, and other VIPs to t he hotel for wine, champagne, and snacks.

It’s one of the most demanded events on the sidelines of the World Travel Market.

This event tonight was a great opportunity for the new WTTC CEO Julia Simpson, to address members, ministers, and guests. She took the helm of this organization representing 200 of the largest businesses in the travel and tourism industry.

The Ministers of Tourism from Jordan, Barbados, Jamaica, and the Philippines were among the guests.

The Philippines will be the host of the next WTTC Summit in 2022.

Juergen Steinmetz, publisher of eTurboNews and Chairman of WTN, attended this event and took this short video:
