[HD video below] Exclusive HD video interview with Jean-Claude Baumgarten, Vice Chairman of the Global Tourism Economy Forum.

Jean-Claude Baumgarten, Vice Chairman of the Global Tourism Economy Forum

In this interview, filmed at the GTEF 2015 in Macau on 12 October, we ask Jean-Claude about how he became involved with the forum after so many years as the President and CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).

We ask what the future holds for the GTEF, how the 2016 event will differ, whether the GTEF will move around or stay in Macau, and whether there will be any sister events created around it.

We also talk about China as a market, and what hotels and other interested parties need to do to attract more Chinese guests. All this and much, much more in the video interview below.
