London Travel Week has confirmed that it will be returning in an online capacity in 2020 to help aid the recovery, rebuilding and innovation of the travel and tourism industry.
The move comes following the announcement that WTM London and Travel Forward will be fully virtual this year.
The event will give the opportunity to travel professionals, businesses and destinations to enhance their WTM Virtual experience by attending virtual events designed to inspire industry recovery, rebuilding and innovation.
WTM Virtual Speed Networking sessions will take up a prominent position during the week, helping travel and tourism professionals to network and meet before booking meetings at WTM Virtual.
Taking place between Oct. 30 and Nov. 5, before WTM Virtual, London Travel Week will be made up of a variety of offerings designed to inspire, educate and celebrate the industry.
The week will also provide an opportunity for brands, destinations and businesses to showcase themselves to the audience of travel professionals before they finalize their meetings, conference sessions and virtual stand visits.
It will also provide the forum for six Speed Networking sessions during the run of the event. These 5-minute meetings will allow attendees to meet, exchange virtual business cards and network before WTM Virtual, providing a truly unique business opportunity.
There will be several virtual summits taking place aimed at specific segments of the tourism industry, such as PR Summit, Travel Content Creators and a deep-dive into some of the most important aspects of modern tourism.
Travel Technology Day in partnership with Travel Forward will take place on Mon., Nov. 2 as well as a Responsible Tourism Day on Wed., Nov. 4.
Some awards ceremonies designed to celebrate and praise those who have gone above and beyond in the travel and tourism industry over the last months will also be the highlights of the week.
