WTM Insights will be distributed quarterly in print and online to attendees at all WTM events, with the first edition printing in March 2018.
The magazine will be distributed to 5,000 senior travel buyers quarterly, with the digital edition distributed far and wide online to the global WTM audience.
The title, which will be overseen by TTG Media group editor Pippa Jacks and sales and marketing director Matt Roclawski, will feature global travel news and destination content, as well as regular exclusive interviews and research. Content will also be carried on the WTM website.
TTG Media is also taking over publication of WTM Business, the magazine for buyers at the Buyers’ Club at WTM London, and running more global travel news on ttgmedia.com
Simon Press, senior director at WTM London, said he was delighted to be working more closely with TTG Media on the new title. “Since 2012 we have built an excellent partnership with TTG Media with the Official Daily Magazines at WTM London, which have become recognised and respected across the event, and in the wider event sector,” he said.
“Working with the TTG Media team to stay in touch with the WTM community all year round with the launch of the new WTM Insights magazine is the logical next step. We can’t wait to bring this new title to the global WTM audience, in print and online.”
TTG Media managing director Daniel Pearce added: “With the TTG Media team’s vast knowledge of the global travel industry, and our considerable experience of contract publishing, we are totally committed to developing this exciting new brand.”
Last week TTG Media celebrated its fourth anniversary as an independent business following a management buy-out in 2013. As well as the weekly TTG and quarterly ttgluxury magazines, flagship products include the TTG Travel Awards, the TTG Top 50 Travel Agencies programme and the ttgluxury Seminar.
