London Travel Week has confirmed that it will be returning in a fully virtual format this year, to help aid the recovery, rebuilding and innovation of the travel and tourism industry.
The move follows the announcement that WTM London and Travel Forward will be fully virtual this year.
Taking place between October 30 and November 5, before WTM Virtual, London Travel Week will be made up of a variety of offerings designed to inspire, educate and celebrate the industry.
The week will also provide an opportunity for brands, destinations and businesses to showcase themselves to the audience of travel professionals before they finalise their meetings, conference sessions and virtual stand visits, said a statement.
The week will also provide the forum for six Speed Networking sessions during the run of the event. These 5-minute meetings will allow attendees to meet, exchange virtual business cards and network before WTM Virtual, providing a truly unique business opportunity.
There will be several virtual summits taking place aimed at specific segments of the tourism industry, such as PR Summit, Travel Content Creators and a deep-dive into some of the most important aspects of modern tourism.
Travel Technology Day in partnership with Travel Forward will take place on November 2 as well as a Responsible Tourism Day on November 4.
Some awards ceremonies designed to celebrate and praise those who have gone above and beyond in the travel and tourism industry over the last months will also be the highlights of the week, it said.
Destination briefings, press conferences and seminars are being designed to educate the audience on what will be taking place in the WTM Virtual Conference Programme.
London Travel Week, brought by WTM London, is the one-stop-shop for event hosts and visitors to be able to shape the next 12 months of travel together.
WTM Virtual will take place from November 9 to 11, offering delegates the chance to arrange one-to-one virtual meetings to do business, attend conference sessions and roundtables, take part in speed networking and more. - TradeArabia News Service
