WTM London and Travel Forward Virtual – the two-day online event of World Travel Market – will kick off on Monday, November 8, with a rich program of on-demand sessions.
WTM & TF Virtual follows on from the recent and successful WTM London and Travel Forward in-person events held at ExCeL during November 1-3, where global brands and leaders once again came together to do business and plan for the future of the travel industry.
