WTM London, a leading tourism and travel exhibition to be held during November 4-6, will once again host a series of high-profile industry conferences and seminars, as part of its #IdeasArriveHere concept.
Following last year’s successful introduction of Regional Inspiration Zones, WTM London 2019 will once again host a varied selection of informative sessions in each of the areas, fitting with the region in which the stage is located.
“We have speakers coming from every corner of the world to spread their wisdom on every element of the travel industry and there will be something of interest to everyone who works in the travel industry over the three days of talks at WTM London 2019,” said Simon Press, Senior Director of WTM London.
On the opening day of WTM London – Monday, November 4 – the Global Stage will host a panel discussion moderated by the Telegraph’s Deputy Head of Travel, Ben Ross, focusing on the current state of UK Travel Markets and what to expect in 2020. Speakers such as Jo Rzymowska, VP and Managing Director of Celebrity Cruises and Caroline Bremner, Head of Travel at Euromonitor will share their views on issues from consumer confidence to changing holiday preferences and the ever-present effect of Brexit.
Tuesday’s schedule will include a ministers’ summit hosted by the UNWTO’s Secretary General, Zurab Pololikashvili and WTM London’s Senior Director, Simon Press on the Global Stage. This summit will provide a practical platform for tourism leaders in the public and private sectors to share best practices and create new innovative perspectives for the travel sector.
Wednesday’s schedule is filled with specific talks designed to benefit all sectors of the industry. Travel Perspective will be taking over the Global Stage in the afternoon to host a talk focusing on the past 40 years of travel and what we have learned from this, which will assist in plans for the future of the industry.
Moreover, for those interested in travel technology, Genesys will be hosting their own panel session in the UK and Ireland Inspiration Zone on the Future of Digital Travel.
