About World Travel Market 2007: World Travel Market 2007 is nearly 2% larger compared to last year, welcoming 5,402 exhibitors from more than 200 represented regions and countries. There are four new countries which are exhibiting for the first time or returning after a long absence: Bosnia and Herzegovina, San Marino, Gibraltar and the Yemen. There have also been nearly 9,500 appointment requests using World Travel Market’s Personal Event Planner or PEP for short. Introduced two years ago, the PEP has proven to be a real help to visitors planning their visit more effectively. It matches delegates own business interests and preferences with exhibitors and their products.
Fiona Jeffery, Chairman of World Travel Market said that although she was delighted that the event had broken all records in terms of size, the most important factor was bringing nearly 50,000 senior industry delegates together under one roof to conduct business, network, identify new markets and learn about new global trends and developments.
“World Travel Market has grown virtually year on year, but for us this is not as important as delivering a quality business to business event”, she said. “Our objectives centre on attracting international buyers with purchasing authority (via our World Travel Market Meridian Club), as well as senior management and industry professionals representing every region and sector.”
World Travel Market is taking place at ExCeL London that lies 2 miles east of Canary Wharf and a further 4 miles from Trafalgar Square. London City Airport, providing access to many European destinations is a mere 5 minutes drive from ExCeL’s Eastern entrance: ExCeL London, 1 Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock,London Docklands,E16 1XL, UK
