The World Travel Market known as the global event now has a record 189 exhibiting countries, an increase of five more countries compared to last year å- Vietnam, Bonaire, Abu Dhabi, Albania and Belarus.
Organisers of World Travel Market have increased the size of the exhibition by more than five per cent when it opens its doors at London ExCeL between Monday 10 - Thursday 13 November.
Additionally, there are five new regions who are either participating at World Travel Market for the first time or are returning after several years absence - Lonion Islands, Rodos, Illinois, Chicago and Heart of England.
There are also more than one hundred new exhibiting companies and organisations across the world participating at this year’s World Travel Market.
Fiona Jeffery, Group Exhibition Director described the latest results as “fantastic”.
“It is clear that exhibitors view World Travel Market as a compelling must-attend event to invest in the future and continue to build solid business.”
The World Travel Market Stage has been located at the area with a strong programme of debates, presentations and features.
“The Stage remains an extremely popular heart to the exhibition”, said Ms. Jeffery,” and is expected to attract additional visitors to the UK and Ireland region.”
Many new as well as regular well-loved initiatives are featured on the WTM Stage as well as a full programme of seminars, workshops and training sessions located in the many function rooms at ExCeL.
Once again World Travel Group will be hosting on centre stage the 2003 World Travel Awards. Winners who were unable to attend the spectacular award ceremony held at The Plaza, New York, last month, will be presented with their prestigious awards during WTM.
