Strong Interest for the second A Taste of ILTM at WTM

World Travel Market, the leading global event for the travel industry, looks forward to hosting the second A Taste of ILTM at WTM on Monday 3 – Tuesday 4 November, following on from the extremely successful inaugural event last year.

The dedicated luxury table-top event, A Taste of ILTM at WTM, connects key international luxury suppliers with high calibre UK-based luxury buyers through pre-scheduled appointments and networking.

A Taste of ILTM at WTM 2014 will welcome 60 exhibitors and 60 buyers to 1,800 pre-scheduled 15 minute appointments, over the first two days of WTM 2014.

The 2014 edition has already seen huge interest with many of the previous and new exhibitors already requesting space and signing up.

Exhibitors already signed up include:

  • Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau
  • Esplanade Oleander d.o.o
  • Heritance Negombo C/o. Aitken Spence Hotel Managements (Pvt) Ltd
  • Hotel Condes de Barcelona
  • Sumahan
  • Waldorf Astoria and Conrad Hotels & Resorts

Last year the event saw 50 top luxury suppliers and 50 senior buyers meet and develop business relationships over two days in an exclusive luxury lounge.

A Taste of ILTM at WTM 2013 helped WTM 2013 facilitate £2.2 billion of industry deals, either through contracts signed at WTM last year or from negotiations which will lead to deals signed before WTM 2014.

Delegates who attend A Taste of ILTM at WTM 2014 will be invited to a champagne networking reception on the opening day, and have the opportunity to hold meetings with the wider international WTM exhibitors and buyers on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 November.

World Travel Market, Senior Director, Simon Press said: “I’m delighted with the response A Taste of ILTM at WTM had last year and this year is looking to be even bigger and better, with some fantastic luxury brands already on board.

“The event brings a dedicated luxury focus to WTM, bringing new products to the event floor and new buyers, improving the overall offering of WTM for all participants.”
