WTM organisers have confirmed that this year’s WTM London will go ahead. The annual event will take place between November 2-4, 2020 in ExCeL London.
This year’s event is centred on the concept of recovery, rebuilding and innovation as the global travel and tourism industry emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a statement, WTM said: “The show will reflect the diverse needs of the travel and tourism industry by incorporating both a live event, at ExCeL London, as well as a virtual event taking place online the week after.
“Furthermore, the leading travel technology exhibition, Travel Forward, which is co-located with WTM London at the ExCeL Centre, will also be taking place this year inspiring visitors to embrace the latest technology that will help rebuild the industry.
“The highest standards of health and safety will be followed across all elements of the shows this year with WTM London, Travel Forward and London Travel Week adhering to UK Government guidelines on social distancing and all other aspects of Covid-19 prevention.
“Visitors can be safe in the knowledge that not only will they have the chance to meet other travel and tourism professionals in person for the first time since the outbreak of COVID-19, but they will be able to do this in a safe environment too.”
