This yearâs World Savers Congress is expected to attract an audience of more than 250 CEOs and senior executives across the global and regional travel industry.

Winners of the 2010 Condé Nast Traveler World Savers Awards will also be honored at the congress.

These are travel companies from around the world hailed for their leadership in social responsibility in five key areas: education, environmental and/or cultural preservation, health, poverty relief, and wildlife conservation.

This yearâs congress will also include five feature panel sessions.

Examples include a CEO Travel Industry Panel, a panel exploring Success Stories of NGOs and others focusing on initiatives by global travel industry leaders, Poverty Relief & Education, Health, and Preservation & Conservation.
