Ticket booking is open for the 43rd edition of World Travel Market London, scheduled from 6-8 November 2023. The organisers have planned several new and exciting changes.

After an in-depth customer research carried out late last year, WTM has announced a host of developments to improve attendee experience and ensure that every member of the travel community extracts as much value from the event as possible. This year, WTM London will open its doors earlier than usual and will be welcoming visitors from 9:30am providing an additional hour for visitors and exhibitors to have impromptu meetings. Visitors are invited to make use of the new, open-for-all, Community Hubs right in the centre of the show, and attendees can also look forward to an ‘everyone’s welcome’ Networking Party that will take place within ExCel London from 5:30pm-7:30pm on 6 November.

There will be a new VIP badge to host senior industry leaders and a big-name, inspirational Closing Keynote on Wednesday  8 November. WTM Connect Me – the show’s meeting booking platform – will be available to Buyers, VIPs and Media via the WTM App. The conference programme will cover eight themes over three different stages throughout the three-day event. The eight conference themes are Sustainability, Technology, Geo-Economics, Emerging Markets, Consumer Trends, Marketing, Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) and Experience and aim to help the global travel community succeed and thrive by informing, entertaining, and influencing their business decisions.

In other changes, the Ministers’ Summit, where dignitaries from around the world gather to discuss and ratify key tourism agreements, will return for its 17th year, and will take place on 6 November.

WTM London 2023 is set to launch its first Diversity and Inclusion Summit on 7 November, supporting WTM’s belief that the travel sector has the power to evoke positive change in the world. Tickets to the three-day show will be free up until 31 October, after which there will be a charge of £45 per person. Organisers are encouraging early booking to ensure visitors take time to plan and maximise their visit.

Juliette Losardo, Exhibition Director, WTM London, said, “We have been working behind the scenes to bring some exciting developments this year. As the travel and tourism sector grows and changes, it’s essential that WTM evolves to guide and support this change; a place for inspiration, for making plans and fixing issues, for diversifying thinking and hardening supply chains – it is our job to ensure the travel sector is equipped for the next chapter. Developments you will see at WTM this year are entirely reflective of what our attendees are asking for. We are bolstering the ways you can maximise value from your visit, with more networking, better business opportunities, a refreshed education programme and a host of new partnerships. We are pleased to be opening ticket booking ahead of the summer and are committed to ensuring travel professionals have the best three days possible.’’
