In 2018, WTM London will introduce Regional Inspiration Zones, set to be the centre point of the regions. In fact, these zones will act as an idea hotbed for debate, research and analysis of each region’s tourism industry. Content sessions, networking events and festivals will be hosted at these Regional Inspiration Zones.

Simon Press, WTM London, Senior Director, said, “WTM London is effectively eight shows under one roof. WTM attracts 50,000 delegates from 182 countries and regions generating £3.1 billion in industry deals. The UK is witnessing an increase in overseas visitor numbers continually, with almost 40 million visits in 2017 – up by 6 per cent in 2016. I am delighted that WTM London plays its part in helping the UK travel industry to grow.”

Another highlight of the event is the WTM London speed networking programme introducing global travel suppliers with travel buyers in a series of quick face-to-face meetings. The programme sees selected quality buyers and digital influencers from around the world gather under one roof.
