The organisation has issued a request for proposals to cities throughout the world, with a deadline of 1 September.

More than 1,000 chief executives and chairs from the travel, tourism, hospitality, aviation and cruise sectors, as well as senior government officials are expected to attend the event, where they will discuss the potential for sustainable development and economic growth.

WTTC president and chief executive Jean-Claude Baumgarten said: "As well as strong international interest from companies coming to do business in the host destination, the summit attracts broadcast and media coverage that can equally benefit the host city."

Next year, the summit is being held in Las Vegas on 17-19 May.
