World travel around committee heads for Tokyo

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has confirmed it will hold its 2012 Global Travel & Tourism Summit in Tokyo, Japan.

Despite stiff competition from three other candidate cities, Tokyo’s success was due to a convincing and compelling presentation that combined industry commitment, government support and enthusiasm from its agencies, dedication to a carbon neutral summit and high standards of efficiency and capability.

The overall accessibility of the destination and – following a deep recession – evidence of accelerating GDP growth and a re-emerging Japanese tourism market, will help ensure the Summit is the must-attend event of the year.

The 100 year anniversary of Japan Tourism Board that same year will also guarantee the summit is a resounding success.

It is a city that enjoys more than 400 years of history and is also one of the most exciting modern and cultural destinations in the world,” says Jean-Claude Baumgarten, president & chief executive of WTTC.
