More than 60 conference sessions are lined up for WTM, the world’s most influential travel & tourism event, empowering the global travel community, and reminding them they have the Power to Change travel.
The conference program will include eight new tracks across three stages over three days, taking place at ExCeL London, from November 6-8, 2023.
In a move away from previous years, the 2023 conference stages will be named Discover, Elevate and Innovate – a reflection of their goal.
Furthermore, in response to the demand in 2022 – which saw 9,102 visitors attend the WTM London Conference sessions – stage sizes have been increased, and rather than one main stage, WTM will host three equally important stages across the event.
The eight conference tracks will be titled Sustainability, Technology, Geo-Economics, Emerging Markets, Consumer Trends, Marketing, Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) and Experience and aim to help the global travel community succeed and thrive, by informing, entertaining, and influencing their business decisions.
In another first, the Discover Stage will feature a new layout designed to support networking. Table-based seating, rather than traditional conference-style chairs, will promote networking between sessions, which will also include icebreakers, storytellers, and socialising during breaks.
