Taking place from the 1 to 7 November 2019, London Travel Week will bring together industry events and become the largest festival supporting the global travel and tourism industry in the world.
The new kid in the mix is discreetly emerging as a still sleeping giant, the International Tourism & Investment Conference on November 1 and 2 at the InterContinental Park Lane, London. It’s the place where tourism celebrities meet emerging leaders in the global travel and tourism industry, and where tourism investment projects can be introduced and find funding.
Each November, over 50,000 travel professionals flock to London and numerous industry events take place throughout the week surrounding WTM London. London Travel Week will create a world-class travel-hub by combining a variety of occasions including awards ceremonies, tourism conferences and travel industry celebrations – demonstrating the array of new possibilities.
On Sunday 3 November, the food, travel and innovation summit FoodTrex will be hosting events throughout the day. This brings cutting edge information on food tourism together with quality networking opportunities, allowing businesses and brands to be part of the evolution of food travel.
The programme for the week also includes the second edition of the International Travel & Tourism Awards (ITTAs). The prestigious awards will celebrate the best in class of national, regional and city tourist boards, as well as outstanding private sector companies and individuals. The ITTAs will be taking place in the brand new Magazine London venue on Tuesday 5 November.
Also on Tuesday 5 November will be a networking event held by MXConnect. This will give attendees the chance to meet Mexican destinations, hotels and DMCs at a networking cocktail session. There will be new contacts and suppliers all under one roof.
Finally, TTG will once again host their highly anticipated WTM London Closing Party on the evening of Wednesday 6 November. This year it will be hosted at the Tropicana Beach Club in Covent Garden and will bring together buyers, sellers, operators, airlines and the travel trade. This invite-only event is certainly not to be missed.
London Travel Week is unlocking invaluable networking and business opportunities for those who journey to the UK during the first week of November for WTM London. This one-stop-shop showcases the must-attend travel and tourism events taking place outside of the home of WTM London – the ExCel, London.
