For the first time in four decades, WTM London becomes WTM Virtual as the travel industry is encouraged to Recover, Rebuild and Innovate in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Here’s how this year’s event is taking shape
After 40 years of travel industry delegates arriving at the capital’s airports and train stations in their tens of thousands for WTM London, the annual event is going virtual for 2020.
Running on Greenwich Mean Time, the newly branded WTM Virtual and Travel Forward Virtual will take place between 7am and 10pm from 9-11 November this year, featuring online meetings, live conferences, watch-on-demand sessions, roundtables, forums, destination briefings and press conferences.
In order to gain access to WTM Virtual and Travel Forward Virtual, attendees need to register online for their “badges” and complete their profile on the WTM London Exhibitor Portal. They will then receive an email containing unique login details for the custom-built platform, which was unveiled on 16 October.
Once registered and logged in (Google Chrome is the recommended browser), attendees will find a host of business-building tools designed to connect buyers, trade and media with exhibiting suppliers.
