Travel trade professionals from around the world can now register for WTM Virtual (November 9-11) to access the range of online conference sessions, briefings and meetings.
Access to London Travel Week Virtual – a set of events designed to celebrate the travel and tourism industry, taking place between October 30 and November 5 will be included in the ticker price.
WTM Virtual will replace the live events of WTM London, Travel Forward and London Travel Week. The platform will follow the WTM Portfolio’s purpose and pledges to offer the best opportunities for travel industry professionals to connect, learn and do business.
Members of the Buyers’ Club, ministers and media will get free access to the entire platform, with trade delegates paying an early bird registration fee of £25. The original price is £34, WTM organisers said.
Visitors can engage in the event starting from October 30, when London Travel Week kicks off and stay connected until the last day of WTM Virtual (Nov 11).
WTM Virtual will be accessible from 7 am-10 pm GMT, which means professionals from different time zones around the world can participate.
Combined, WTM Virtual and London Travel Week, will offer an extensive conference programme of nearly 50 sessions streamed live online and on demand with the majority of the sessions open to all.
Some of the virtual event visitors will also be able to access and watch:
• UNWTO, WTTC and WTM Ministers’ Summit
• Responsible Tourism Sessions
• International Tourism and Investment Conference – ITIC
• Destination Briefings and Press Conferences from all over the world
• Aviation sessions with Ryanair and JetBlue CEOs
• Travel Forward Virtual – Technology Conference
• London Travel Week Virtual Content Creators Summit
• PR Summit
Furthermore, trade delegates can upgrade their access package for £20 in order to have five pre-scheduled meetings with exhibitors. These one-to-one video meetings will last for half-an-hour and take place during WTM Virtual.
