World Travel & Tourism Council to Be Held in Tokyo

On April 16, the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) will gather in Tokyo.

The three-day international event will focus on the "tourism industry in turbulent times" and nowhere is that more evident than Sendai, which was affected by the tsunami last March. The council will visit the rapidly healing city as well as visit local tourism destinations that have been overshadowed in light of last year's natural disaster.

The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) will emphasize Japan's safety and cultural, as well as technological, advantages for  business and leisure travel at the WTTC conference.  Over 1,000 delegates from tourism industries will gather at the annual summit to discuss tourism agendas.

Following the summit, JNTO is inviting participants to report their first-hand WTTC experience in New York City via videos and photos.
