The Turkish Culture and Tourism Office is sponsoring two key digital events at this year’s WTM London and the inaugural International Travel & Tourism Awards.
The sponsorship deals are part of a wider focus on social media for the popular tourist destination.
The tourist office is sponsoring both the WTM Digital Influencers’ Speed Networking and Best Digital Influencer Award at the inaugural International Travel & Tourism Awards (ITTAs).
Previously called the Bloggers’ Speed Networking, this year’s WTM London Digital Influencers’ Speed Networking event will be the biggest so far. The hugely popular 90-minute session takes place on Wednesday 7 November at 9am in the Global Stage Networking Area (AS1000).
120 industry digital influencers will hold quick-fire business meeting with exhibitors interested in increasing their media exposure with an increased focus on YouTubers and Instagrammers.
Turkey is also sponsoring the category of Best Digital Influencer in the Industry at the brand new International Travel & Tourism Awards (ITTAs), presented by WTM London.
Taking place at a glittering showcase in Tobacco Dock on Tuesday, November 6, the new ITTAs celebrate the success of national, regional and city tourist boards and recognises outstanding private sector companies and individuals.
WTM London is the leading global event for the travel industry. The 2018 edition will take place from 5 to 7 November 2018 at ExCeL London.
