The World Tourism Association for Culture and Heritage (WTACH) has promoted former CCO Nigel Fell to the role of President and CEO with immediate effect. Former CEO Chris Flynn has taken on the position of Executive Chairman of WTACH.

This move gives WTACH the stewardship of two top-line executive officers who will focus on the association’s agenda of growing its global membership base while continuing to move beyond the challenges posed by the pandemic.

WTACH has reported a significant surge in enquiries and engagement requests since the recent easing of global travel restrictions, and the association looks to facilitate the recovery of tourism.

Fell said that WTACH is “ready” as it has developed robust policy and procedure protocols and training modules to help governments and industry better manage their cultural and heritage tourism assets, experiences and delivery.

“Through WTACH's development of responsible and sustainable tourism practices, the association has created a unique platform where it can make a genuinely positive impact on how a new era of tourism is planned, delivered and consumed,” added Flynn.

Fell will drive engagement with destination and tourism stakeholders, starting with the Qatar Travel Mart and Conference in Doha from 16 to 18 November.
