As the global travel industry prepares for recovery, WTM London reports that exhibitors from over 30 countries around the world have already signed up.
WTM London’s physical show will take place at ExCeL London from Nov. 1 to Nov. 3, 2021, and will be followed by WTM Virtual on Nov. 8 and Nov. 9.
The show will feature exhibitors from 16 European countries plus more than a dozen destinations further afield, such as Peru, China, Israel, Maldives, Russia and the US.
Along with popular tourism hotspots, there will be exhibitors from smaller and emerging destinations such as the Falkland Islands.
All in all, the exhibitors represent a wide range of tourism companies and organizations, including tourist boards, hotel chains, cruise lines, DMCs and major attractions.
Many of them will also host exhibiting partners on their stands, to support smaller enterprises as the sector bounces back from the pandemic.
The Middle East and the Gulf regions are well represented with the likes of Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar and Egypt.
Simon Press, WTM London & Travel Forward exhibition director, observed that: “This November will be a pivotal time for our sector to come together to reconnect and rebuild. All our research shows there is a huge amount of pent-up demand for travel so exhibitors who seize the moment at WTM London will be able to meet fresh contacts, seal lucrative deals and discover innovations and ideas that will reshape travel.”
And Press concluded: “Destinations can showcase to the rest of the world how they are open for business and support their tourism professionals in driving productive, profitable business relationships.”
