Buyers from travel firms around the world can reconnect with established partners, forge new contacts and make business deals at next month’s WTM Virtual (9-11 November) from 7am to 10pm GMT, to allow access to all the different time zones across the globe.
Organisers of the online event aim to host 5,000 pre-selected buyers from a diverse range of companies across the world and from their global database.
Buyers will have access to one-to-one meetings for free, along with other opportunities to meet exhibitors taking part in WTM Virtual and Travel Forward Virtual. Furthermore, they can meet members of the media and influencers from around the world.
Some buyers with spending power in certain sectors will be selected to take part in Speed Networking sessions during London Travel Week.
As well as sealing crucial business contracts for 2021 and beyond, the buyers will be able to learn about key travel trends as the industry recovers, rebuilds and innovates in the wake of the pandemic.
Those who apply will be vetted to ensure they are senior, high-calibre buyers and then they can join the WTM Buyers’ Club.
This will enable free access to the entire WTM Virtual platform, with many opportunities to connect, learn and do business.
The online activities start with London Travel Week (30 October-5 November) which hosts networking and promotional opportunities ahead of the main events during WTM Virtual (9-11 November).
