WTM London 2021 has released a sneak preview of the main live events that will take place on the WTM Global Stage at ExCeL London during November 1 – 3.
The premium travel trade show will reveal findings from the official WTM London Industry Report, the must-read report for anyone who wants the inside information on what the industry and UK holidaymakers are thinking about, what’s important to them and where they want to travel next year and beyond.
Market research company Euromonitor International is also set to reveal their new Innovation report, an annual highlight for all visitor types to learn from and enjoy.
Meanwhile, aviation sessions, organised by WTM’s aviation expert, John Strickland will take-off on the Global Stage. “WTM’s BIG Airline Session” focuses on the state of play, the challenges and the outlook for the sector which is still in deep crisis due to the C0vid-19 pandemic.
Furthermore, two key destinations will take centre stage at WTM with the WTM China Forum organised by China Travel Online, looking at China’s recovery and reopening, market trends and key factors to attract Chinese visitors. These will be followed by two exciting sessions on up and coming destination Saudi Arabia, with Saudi Arabia’s Tourism Vision and Saudi Giga Projects Put Sustainability First.
A fundamental part of WTM London will be the extremely well respected and highly anticipated Responsible Tourism session and Awards.
In addition, the UNWTO, WTTC & WTM Ministers’ Summit will return for 2021, under the title “Investing in Tourism’s Sustainable Future”. The Summit will unite tourism ministers, sector leaders and top thinkers, and examine tourism’s sustainable future and the essential role targeted ‘green investments’ will play in achieving this.
Other key topics and unmissable sessions around travel agents, Brexit and the future of the travel industry workforce will also take place to round-off the three days of top quality content.
Meanwhile, a revamped version of the WTM Buyers’ Club Speed Networking is among the major features lined up for WTM London 2021.
This year’s event is built upon an innovative hybrid format. The familiar physical event will take place at ExCeL London on Monday, November 1 through to Wednesday, November 3. It will be followed by WTM Virtual, streaming live between November 8-9.
