WTM Virtual, the new digital platform for this year’s WTM London and London Travel Week, is now live and open for all registered delegates to create professional and business profiles; connect with exhibitors, trade, media and buyers; pre-schedule meetings; and select unmissable conference sessions.
WTM Virtual will take place during November 9-11 with the aim to offer travel professionals the opportunity to come together to recover, rebuild and innovate the travel industry.
The virtual platform will be live from now until November 25, allowing attendees to familiarize themselves with the platform before the show kicks off and catch up on any missed content once the virtual exhibition is over.
Meetings can only be conducted during the three days of the show, starting on November 9.
The platform will embrace one-to-one meetings and networking events between buyers, exhibitors, trade professionals and media and over 50 conference sessions across WTM Virtual, Travel Forward Virtual and London Travel Week on-demand videos.
London Travel Week will kick start the opening of WTM Virtual on 30 October from 10:00-12:00 (GMT) with the Future of Travel Marketing, a tailored marketing session hosted by top marketing experts.
London Travel Week will also host six Speed Networking sessions so that exhibitors, brands and destinations can meet before the WTM Virtual show and form business connections.
The week will also provide the perfect forum to celebrate the achievements of those in the travel and tourism industry through virtual awards ceremonies such as the World Travel Leaders’ Awards and the Responsible Tourism Awards.
In addition, the first day of the show will bring together the largest annual gathering of tourism ministers in the world. The UNWTO, WTTC and WTM Ministers’ Summit, will feature a day-long think-tank on Monday 9 November.
On day two, the WTM Virtual will host the ITIC Tourism Investment Summit, designed to help recover businesses and restore travellers’ confidence after the COVID-19 pandemic.
