Ministers’ Summit

“Tourism and Mega-Events: building a lasting legacy”
Tourism and mega-events are closely interlinked in today’s
globalized society. Many of those participating in mega events are
tourists, while mega events have an enormous impact in all the
components of the tourism value chain of the host destination(s).
Beyond the immediate impacts in
terms of investment, infrastructurenamely accommodation and
transport, urban development
or regeneration, employment
generation and brand exposurethere are a number of legacy
impacts that should be associated
with hosting a mega-event. This
year’s UNWTO & WTM Ministers’
Summit will look into what it takes
to create a lasting tourism legacy
from hosting mega-events.
