Chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts Stephen Wynn will be among a host of key speakers at this year’s annual Global Tourism Economy Forum in Macau.
Also speaking at the September 17-19 forum – in the Macau Tower Convention and Entertainment Centre – will be Shao Qi Wei, Chairman of China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) and Michael Frenzel, Chairman of the World Travel and Tourism Council.
They will be joined by Mari Elka Pangestu, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of Republic of Indonesia, Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism of Cambodia and Dr. Taleb Rifai, Secretary General of World Tourism Organisation UNWTO.
It will be the second consecutive year such a forum has been hosted in the former Portuguese enclave with more than 1000 delegates from 34 cities around the world to attend last year’s inaugural event.
The forum is billed as one of the most important tourism events in China’s affluent Pearl River Delta Region. To register costs $US650 or 5070 MOP, group discounts apply.
Among last year’s 48 speakers was Australian Christopher Brown, special representative of the World Tourism Organisation UNWTO.
This year’s topic – Regenerate Our Economies: Invest in Travel and Tourism – is expected to attract another high-level gathering of key decision-makers in the global travel and tourism sector.
