APAC & tech in demand @WTM
About 20 technology companies have signed up as new exhibitors at the Travel Tech Show and exhibitors from APAC region have significantly increased the size of their stands at this year’s World Travel Market London 2017.
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.”
