The WTM Virtual event will offer a series of pre-recorded On Demand Virtual Sessions so visitors can keep up-to-date with the latest trends and developments at a time that is convenient to them, without having to wait for scheduled sessions.
As soon as WTM Virtual starts at 7am on 9 November, delegates will be able to access a number of pre-recorded sessions, which have been specially selected to help delegates in their Covid-19 recovery plan.
Each session will highlight the opportunities waiting to be grasped in some of the most exciting sectors, including LGBTQ+ as well as the lucrative student, youth and education sector.
Other on-demand sessions will look at specific regions, such as how China is navigating its way out of the Covid-19 tourism crisis, or expected demand for increased travel to Latin America.
More specifically, the session, Planning for our Recovery. LGBTQ+ Travel in 2021 and Beyond, in partnership with PROUD Experiences, will feature speakers Fred Dixon, President and CEO, nyc&co; Shannon Knapp, President & CEO, Leading Hotels of the World; and Mark Fletcher, CEO, Manchester Pride.
Τhe virtual session, “From the UK to Latin America, what can we expect in 2021 in travel & tourism”, has been organised in association with ForwardKeys. The session will reveal the latest forward booking data and flight search trends in and out of the UK with a special focus placed on Latin America and the Caribbean.
Also available on demand is the China Tourism Forum at WTM Virtual, which will shed some light on the measures China has taken in the recovery of the travel and tourism industry.
Furthermore, the session, Youth, Student & Educational Travel – the key to long term, sustainable recovery in the travel industry, will look at growth opportunities and how the sector might change post-Covid; the type of experiences Generation Z might look for in the future and how marketeers can tap into the influential and high repeat visitor sector.
