Travel and Tourism are dependent on connectivity. This is equally important for big players in the industry and SMEs.
World Tourism Network is a fast-growing, dynamic community bringing small and medium size businesses to the table, and connectivity is an equal concern for tourism businesses of all sizes.
WTN is preparing for its first global summit to take place in Bali from September 29 to October 1, 2023
Airlines such as Garuda, Turkish Airlines, Singapore Airlines, and Emirates understand emerging markets and the importance of SMEs and the World Tourism Network as global advocates, allowing hosted buyers within the small and medium-sized companies in the selling travel trade community to explore Indonesia and its niche markets.
It also allows tourism destinations from around the 132 WTN member countries to promote their destination to Indonesia’s lucrative outbound market’s ever-increasing importance.
Partner airlines support the TIME2023 summit in Bali with the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Industries, the Bali Tourism Board, the Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Center, and many others.
Mauritius-based Vijay Poonoosamy, the former VP of International Affairs for Etihad Airways and Chair of the WTN Aviation Interest Group, will lead a panel on connectivity.
