World Travel Market (WTM) is inviting the industry’s most senior buyers to apply for Buyers’ Club membership for WTM 2014.
WTM organiser Reed Travel Exhibitions gives as an example of the kind of senior WTM Buyers’ Club member it wishes to attract: “a tour operator looking to purchase product from exhibitors to put in its brochures, or an IT director looking to purchase a technology for their organisation”.
WTM 2013 saw more than 8,500 WTM Buyers’ Club members attend the event, which organisers claim facilitated a record £2.2bn in industry deals.
Benefits of membership include the WTM Speed Networking sessions (on the first and last days of the event), exclusive WTM Buyers’ Club lounges, access to private meeting rooms and discounted travel, accommodation and entertainment.
World Travel Market Buyers’ Club Manager Raj Thakkar said: “WTM Buyers’ Club is the industry’s original and only truly global buyers’ club. We have listened to the wants and needs of buyers within the industry to ensure that their time is ‘hassle-free’, ensuring an easier process to discuss business, leading to contracts being signed”.
WTM 2014 takes place at Excel London, 3-6 November.
