Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, has been announced as the host city for the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Summit in 2023. This marks the first time that the event will be held in Africa.

The 2022 event, hosted in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia under the theme “Travel for a Better Future,” attracted more than 3,000 delegates from over 85 countries, including over 50 ministers.

Rwanda, home to the International Gorilla Conservation Programme, will showcase the power of sustainable tourism to protect biodiversity and create thriving communities at the summit.


We are incredibly excited that Rwanda will host our next Global Summit in 2023. An amazing country famous for its conservation work, Rwanda is building its reputation as a must-see destination.
