ILTM Latin America to Tackle Issues Related to Luxury Travel
ILTM Latin America 2020 will bring the global luxury travel industry together to explore building a future through “intercultural dialogue” to prepare to face cultural, economic and environmental challenges together as a global community.
Taking place in Sao Paulo, 5–8 May, speakers at the ILTM Latin America Opening Ceremony – led by Event Director Simon Mayle - will also commit to the movement to reduce deforestation and restore the forests in the Brazilian Amazon.
