The event, which will take place at ExCeL, November 6-8, is poised to be “the most successful yet”, according to organisers.
It is expected exhibitors will be able to conduct even more business than last year’s record £2.8 billion, due to the introduction of a second buyers’ speed networking session on the Tuesday morning.
This means each morning will see a speed networking session at 9am before the exhibition floor opens at 10am.
Monday will see buyers split by geography, the new Tuesday session will see them split by the sector they purchase in, and on Wednesday the session will be the Digital Influencers’ Speed Networking.
The WTM Inspire Theatre – a 300-seater amphitheatre – will return to the exhibition floor in the North Hall of ExCeL, while the WTM International Media Centre will remain on the exhibition floor after last year’s “successful relocation”.
“A taste of ILTM” will return across all three days of WTM London and will be joined by a new Wellness & Spa section on the exhibition floor.
More than 80 conference seminars will take place over the three days, covering all the key sectors including aviation, hotels, weddings and honeymoons, gastronomy, sports tourism, responsible tourism, digital influencers, social media and travel technology.
