RIYADH: Saudi Arabia will host the 22nd World Travel and Tourism Council Global Summit in Riyadh from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2 this year.
It was announced at the global summit’s closing session in Manila, according to a statement.
“We are excited to welcome the world to experience the excitement and the energy of Saudi (Arabia). We promise you that the next summit will be fresh, inspiring, and rewarding,” Saudi Tourism Authority CEO Fahd Hamidaddin said.
