Reed Exhibitions has announced that the 2020 edition of WTM Latin America has been postponed, due to the ongoing pandemic.
The event, which was set to take place in October 2020, will now take place on April 6-8, 2021, at Expo Center Norte in São Paulo.
Reed Exhibitions has responded to the current pandemic situation through hosting ongoing conversations with its customers, whose welfare is its number one priority.
“Due to the uncertainty in the region and around the world, with many of our clients facing company travel bans, we’ve made the decision not to go ahead with this year’s event. Our thoughts are with all those affected in these difficult times,” Reed Exhibitions’ announcement stated.
“We also recognise that businesses have to continue. With this in mind, over the coming months, we will be creating ways of keeping our travel community connected to support and collaborate to keep our world moving during this challenging period,” it read.
This November, Reed Exhibitions will launch WTM Virtual, a digital event that will bring together the portfolio’s four brands – WTM Latin America, WTM Africa, ATM, WTM London and Travel Forward. WTM Virtual will work to promote interaction between exhibitors and visitors, provide quality content and information on the tourist chain and other activities.
