NEW YORK -- Former President Bill Clinton will address the European
Travel Commission's Trans-Atlantic Travel Marketing Conference set
for Dec. 18.
The event, conceived as a forum on how to rebuild a
transatlantic tourism industry shattered by the events of Sept. 11,
is expected to draw more than 400 participants, said the 33-nation
New U.S. marketing plans for 2003, and the speech by Clinton --
underwritten by Smithsonian magazine and viewed by ETC members as a
sure-fire attention-getter -- will be highlights of the daylong
event, to be held at an as-yet-undetermined location.
"Clinton's appearance demonstrates how seriously the government
tourism offices view the current situation," said Einar Gustavson,
the ETC's U.S. chairman.
