WTM Latin America 2015 already 25% booked

Hilton, Atout France, Accor, Air France expand stand space

World Travel Market Latin America reports that 25% of the exhibition’s floor space for 2015 has already been rebooked. As many as 24 exhibitors from the event two weeks ago have confirmed their intention to return next year with many “dramatically increasing” their overall stand space.

Those already confirmed for next year’s event at the Expo Center Norte in Sao Paulo from April 22-24 include Mexico, Dubai, Chile, Morocco, Brand USA, Trump Hotels and Windsor Hotels.

Hilton Worldwide has not only rebooked but doubled its stand space, while Atout France, Accor and Air France have all increased their stand space by 20%.

As well as appointments on stands, business was also driven by a hosted buyer program and three speed networking events.

WTM Latin America’s organisers said 16,000 travel trade professionals attended the event, which was held at the Transamerica Expo Centre and which coincided with the 41st Braztoa Business Meeting.
