Organisers expect a lively atmosphere at the new-look three day event

Why should agents attend WTM London this year? WTM London 2016 is poised to be the most successful yet. The new- look three-day format has been universally well received from all participant groups and delegates will be able to conduct even more business than last year’s record £2.5 billion and save on the ancillary cost with WTM London being one day shorter. Opening hours have been extended from 10am to 7pm on all three days to increase the business opportunities available.

What’s on day by day? Monday November 7 will remain an exhibitor invite-only day, allowing exhibitors to conduct business meetings with key suppliers. The event will kick off with the WTM Speed Networking in the WTM Global Stage at 9am – before the exhibition floor opens at 10am. A taste of ILTM at WTM returns for the fifth year across the Monday and Tuesday.

Agent view

“Having attended WTM for many years it still fills me with great anticipation to find out what is happening in worldwide travel and 2016 is no exception. WTM has got to be one of the

best venues for the gathering of travel information anywhere in the world and this seems to improve year by year. You have speakers on

different aspects of global travel and it is a great place to meet up with some travel people that you may not have seen for years. Seek out the Greek stand for

lovely moussaka at lunchtime or pop into the Caribbean stands for a lovely rum punch – the choice is yours.” Aidan O’Kelly, personal travel adviser, Colchester Travel

Tuesday November 8 is the new day for World Responsible Tourism Day, keeping sustainability at the heart of the event. Wednesday November 9 is the new day for the UNWTO & WTM Ministers’ Summit, which is celebrating its 10th edition this year.

Sounds packed – what else do you squeeze in? The WTM Inspire Theatre, a new 300-seat amphitheatre, will be added to the exhibition floor in the North Hall of ExCeL. With more than 80 conference seminars taking place throughout the three days, covering all the key sectors including aviation, hotels, sports tourism, responsible tourism, blogging, social media and travel technology, agents have the

opportunity to learn and improve their knowledge.

Can agents let their hair down at WTM London? Yes! WTM London will conclude with the WTM Festivals, which will see a number of exhibitors hosting parties showcasing their culture, music and cuisine. The festivals give everyone the opportunity to socialise after the traditional working hours in a fun and vibrant atmosphere. For example, India will host a big party with dancing, food and drink, the Philippines will host a street party with singing and percussion instruments, food and a cocktail bar, and the Caribbean area will be alive with music and food.
