Welcome to the new-look three-day WTM London 2016, at ExCeL, London. We have a packed day of business negotiations and thought-provoking content ahead. Starting with the WTM Speed Networking session before the exhibition floor opens at 10am, this session will kick start the business discussions.


Today is exhibitor invite-only and is focused on business and for our WTM Leaders’ Lunch we have digital futurist Brian Solis addressing the delegates on the trends shaping their businesses.


This afternoon is packed with not-to-be-missed content starting with the keynote Tackling the Toughest Issues Destinations Face with Doug Lansky in the new WTM Inspire Theatre (EU475) at 12.30pm. At 1.30pm the Global Sport Tourism Summit at WTM London, including the Global Sports Tourism Awards, takes up the whole afternoon (Platinum Suite 1).


The aviation programme starts with interviews with IAG’s Willie Walsh and Emirates’ Sir Tim Clark in the WTM Global Stage (AS950) at 2.45pm.


I’m sure Brexit will be one of the most discussed topics on the exhibition floor over the next three days. At 3.45pm World Travel Leaders: Brexit, How Will It Change UK Travel – Inbound and Outbound? has a distinguished panel to discuss the implications for the sector.


I wish you all a successful WTM London 2016.


Simon Press

Senior exhibition director
