At World Travel Market (WTM), which takes place next week from 6-8 November in London’s Excel Centre, thousands of business deals will be negotiated, new contacts made and established relationships reinforced. For those who have not been, WTM offers an opportunity to sample new hotels, resorts and destinations, to widen your knowledge and learn about new travel trends and products. ABTA will be hosting a stand at the event again this year and over the course of the three days we will be meeting with senior government officials from destinations around the world, raising Members’ concerns and discussing ways in which we can work together. Our Director of Destinations and Sustainability, Nikki White, will be on two panels: “Crisis Communication in the Digital Era” and “What are the priorities for Responsible Tourism over the next five years?”

For the first time ever we are able to offer Members a VIP link to gain access to the full three days, including invitation-only Monday. If you are attending WTM, please come along to our stand GV580 in Global Village and meet the ABTA team, and we can discuss the wide range of services that the association offers. Let us know if you need any help from our team of experts, or simply come and have a chat, but don’t forget to pick up your complimentary copies of Travel Law Today, and our mini guides on GDPR, Holiday Habits 2017 and the Tourism Accommodation Health and Safety Technical Guide. We will be hosting complimentary buffet lunches at our stand for Members between midday and 2pm, in conjunction with key ABTA Partners, but places are limited so if you are interested in attending, or would like more information, please contact membersinfo@abta.co.uk
