World Travel Market London is now accepting registrations for the new-look three-day WTM London 2016, which is taking place from November 7-9.
Set to be the most successful event of this calibre, the new-look three-day format has been universally well received from all participant groups. Delegates will be granted the opportunity to conduct even more business than last year, and save on the ancillary cost with WTM London being one day shorter.
Meanwhile, opening hours have been extended from 10:00 until 19:00 on all three days of the event, to increase the business opportunities available.
This year’s exhibition floor in the North Hall of ExCeL – London will welcome the WTM Inspire Theatre, a new 300-seater amphitheatre, while the WTM International Press Centre has been moved on to the exhibition floor for the first time (in the South Hall).
Over 80 conference seminars are scheduled to take place throughout the three days covering all the key sectors including aviation, hotels, sports tourism, responsible tourism, blogging, social media and travel technology.
The first day of the show will remain an exhibitor invite-only day, allowing exhibitors to conduct business meetings with key suppliers. The day will begin with the WTM Speed Networking in the WTM Global Stage at 09:00 before the exhibition floor opens at 10:00. A taste of ILTM at WTM returns for the fifth year across day one and two of the exhibition.
Meanwhile, day two is now World Responsible Tourism Day, keeping sustainability at the heart of the event.
Finally, day three of the show is the new day for the UNWTO & WTM Ministers’ Summit, which is this year celebrating its 10th edition. WTM London 2016 will conclude with the WTM Festivals, which will see a number of exhibitors hosting parties showcasing their culture, music and cuisine.
Senior director, World Travel Market London, Simon Press declared: “World Travel Market London continues to improve every year, with 2016 poised to be the most successful yet. We are really excited by the new-look three-day WTM London. Feedback has been universally positive from all participant groups. There are a number of new initiatives including the Inspire Theatre and the press centre being on the exhibition floor for the first time.”
