Simon Press, WTM London and Travel Forward Exhibition Director, said:

“The success of WTM London’s and Travel Forward’s in-person events have proved beyond doubt that face-to-face networking is back, but for those unable to attend the in-person event, WTM & TF Virtual is the perfect solution.

“Next week, WTM & TF Virtual gives us the opportunity to interact with an even greater global audience.

“Not only can people meet to discuss business, or even follow up on leads they picked up at ExCeL, but can also familiarise themselves with the latest thinking and trends by tuning into the on-demand sessions.”
