WTM plans changes for 2013 event

Luxury, technology and business offerings increased

World Travel Market will increase its luxury, technology and business offerings as part of a new-look event next year. WTM 2013, scheduled for November 4 to 7, will bring three significant changes.
The Travel Technology area – the event’s fastest growing section in recent years – will become its own event within WTM, called The Travel Tech Show at WTM. Secondly, World Travel Market will launch a two-day Luxury Showcase event on the first two days of the exhibition, in association with the International Luxury Travel Market. The first day will be appointment-led, the second day including a conference program.
Thirdly, Business Travel Market, a WTM sister event, will co-locate with WTM at ExCeL for November 6 and 7.
