Seminar | TOURISM | November 26-27, 2017 | All Islamic Countries


Now in its second year, The World Halal Tourism Summit brings together the global family friendly tourism community in a unique summit dedicated to the needs of family friendly travel. Unlike other events in the Halal travel sector that only describe the issue, WHTS17 defines and drives future initiatives and industry content. The summit presents insight and solutions and brings together tourism leaders, innovators, investors and stakeholders who all share one common aim of understanding and driving the family friendly travel industry. Family friendly tourism is one of the fastest growing areas of global tourism and excluding Hajj and Umrah,is set to surpass +$238 billion by 2019. The sector is tailored around the travel needs of Muslim tourists who predominately seek a family friendly environment. Primary source markets include OIC member countries supported by non-Muslim majority markets with fast growing residents Muslim populations including Europe, North America, China and India. Halal tourists are proven to travel with more family members, stay for a longer period and ultimately spend more money than any other tourism niche. For these reasons tourism brands across the globe are adapting their services to meet the needs of these guests.
