The WTTC and Carnival Corporation will hold a global summit to discuss the impact of Covid-19 on the tourism industry, and provide a roadmap to better navigate the current crisis.
The virtual summit will take place on July 23, from 14.00 GMT to 17.30 GMT, and is free and open to the public.
The event will convene a panel of leading scientists and health experts to share the latest scientific knowledge and evidence-based best practices related to prevention, detection, treatment and mitigation of Covid-19.
Global tourism leaders, WTTC members, government agencies, destination partners, trade and private businesses will share the very latest science and medical evidence that can be used to inform practical, adaptable and science-based solutions for mitigating and living with the virus.
Gloria Guevara, WTTC president and CEO, said: “The science of this virus is rapidly evolving and these real-time insights will be invaluable in helping us determine evidence-based protection and mitigation measures to combat Covid-19. They will also help drive global alignment and collaboration on the frontiers of science and policy, which is critical to the survival of this important sector.”
Panels will include a mix of science-based debates and discussions on key topics, including epidemiology, transmission, screening and testing, therapeutics, and practical risk mitigation.
