The Global Travel and Tourism Resilience Council is the go-to resilience expert for anyone in the travel and tourism industry.
The Council provides a platform for professionals from various industries to share information and best practices regarding resilience, crises and disasters - both man-made and natural - in the context of tourism. The council is partnered with multiple governments around the world, including Jordan, South Africa, Jamaica, Greece and Nepal, in order to host events which provide this forum.
These events provide benefits for all sectors of the travel and tourism industry, ranging from aviation to tour operators and destinations, providing valuable real-time advice and information through comprehensive partnership programmes. The goal of the GTTRC for 2019 is to engage with not only the corporate travel and tourism industry, but also the leisure sector, proactively partnering with industry suppliers in order to become the quintessential resilience strategy platform.
The Council was created following the success of the International Travel and Tourism Crisis Management Summit, which hosted its first event in London in 2016. ITCMS grew from 2016, becoming a yearly event and paving the way for the Resilience Through Tourism Summit, held in Amman, Jordan in 2018.
The International Travel Crisis Management Summit launched in 2016 to bring together leading figures from across the globe to share best practices and discuss emergent threats to display resilience during crisis.
The Resilience Through Tourism Summit took place in Jordan in 2018. The conference brought together key stakeholders from the private and public sectors to discuss strategies for recovery and developing resilience, brand management for sustainable growth and effective communications.
