Since many members in our community are attending WTM London (7-9 November), we've created this thread for attendees to share tips, informal meetups, and call-outs.
We did this thread last year, and it was a great success!
👇 Introduce yourself below if you're attending WTM
Hi, As digital marketing service providers to a number of travel firms, I will be at WTM on the 8th & 9th & would welcome the opportunity to meet up with anyone that fancies an informal chat.
Only online as media
I'm still debating but starting to lean towards yes... seems like a lot of people in my network are going and I'd love to meet face to face!
My biggest hesitation is whether or not it's worth it as a solo business owner. Do other small businesses struggle with taking time away from running the biz to attend conferences? Is WTM worth it?
Yes, I think it's worth it. It's not just about meeting exhibitors, the continuous programme of expert talks, panels, and presentations is worth it alone. In your sector, I see there is a dedicated stage for 'sustainability' and another for 'Technology'.
Definitely. I'd advise to anyone who wants to leverage their time at the show, look at how many case studies each company/exhibitor/partner has, and learn from their initiatives. You might find a golden mine in there
Thank you! I booked my trip there!
Great tip, thanks!
I will be attending as tour operator (sustainable, community based tourism CBT, halal friendly travel)
Ma sha Allah. Good luck👍
Will you be attending?
Not this year as it conflicts with another event I'm organising. But I hope there's a virtual catchup afterwards.
Not this year.
Good day, Buenos dias, fellow TM community members. My name is Donovan and I am based in Manchester, UK. I work on the South America travel agency side of things and will be at WTM this year - from Mon-Wed. 7-9. Feel free to reach out to meet or perhaps we end up arranging an informal get together Mon. or Tues. evening. -- Donovan
I'll be there on the 7th pitching DMOs for '23 collaborations.
Congrats on taking over Berlin TM by the way :)
Great to see WTM London back at full capacity.
