WTM Lon­don, the lead­ing global event for the travel in­dus­try, sched­uled to be held from Novem­ber 6-8, 2017, has been uni­ver­sally well re­ceived from all par­tic­i­pant groups. More than 80 con­fer­ence sem­i­nars will take place through­out the three days cov­er­ing all the key sec­tors in­clud­ing avi­a­tion, ho­tels, wed­ding and hon­ey­moon, gas­tron­omy, sports tourism, re­spon­si­ble tourism, dig­i­tal in­flu­encers, so­cial me­dia and travel tech­nol­ogy.

Ex­hibitors from the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion have sig­nif­i­cantly in­creased the size of their stands at this year’s event. The growth is seen across the board, from ma­ture mar­kets in Ja­pan, Korea and Aus­tralia to emerg­ing des­ti­na­tions such as Kyr­gyzs­tan, Tai­wan, Mon­go­lia and Viet­nam.

The Travel Tech Show at WTM Lon­don has signed up more than 20 travel com­pa­nies as new ex­hibitors for the ded­i­cated travel tech­nol­ogy event. Play­ers such as eNett In­ter­na­tional, Kigo and eMer­chan­tPay among oth­ers, will make their de­but at the trade event.

Con­tent Man­age­ment and Dis­tri­bu­tion Sys­tem Wetu is also among the new­bies at WTM Lon­don and its CEO Paul de Waal said, “At Wetu, our mis­sion is to im­prove the way the travel in­dus­try sells their prod­ucts. We add huge value to our clients by mak­ing their busi­ness more ef­fi­cient and sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease their abil­ity to con­vert op­por­tu­ni­ties. Af­ter many years of build­ing and per­fect­ing our dig­i­tal tools, we are ready to ex­hibit at the Travel Tech Show at WTM and show the world how travel should be sold.”

Si­mon Press, Se­nior Di­rec­tor, World Travel Mar­ket Lon­don ex­pressed, “It’s re­mark­able to see how quickly ex­hibitors in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion are in­creas­ing their stands at WTM Lon­don. It’s a re­flec­tion of the bur­geon­ing growth in that part of the world and how the travel trade there recog­nises that WTM Lon­don is an un­ri­valled plat­form to both con­duct busi­ness and boost aware­ness.”

He added, “Over the past cou­ple of years, we’ve also seen an up­surge in the num­ber of vis­i­tors who say they want to do busi­ness with, or find out more about the Asia-Pa­cific ex­hibitors – the num­ber rose by 6 per cent be­tween 2015 and 2016, and we ex­pect that growth rate to in­crease yet fur­ther this year.”
