WORLD TRAVEL MARKET (Excel ” Monday 8 November ” Thursday 11 November) is looking to hit record figures this year. Latest research shows that its 25th anniversary event will be the biggest ever. Organisers of the world”s largest business to business forum for the travel and tourism industry expect the size of the exhibition to grow by more than 4% to nearly 39,500 square metres. More than 5,000 exhibitors from over 190 countries will be participating. The move to east London from Earls Court has been a success and the opening of a direct rail service to the close by London City Airport next year will only help with attracting business from Europe. What is evident however is the concentration on tourism, with the business travel industry more interested in the their own London show in February (see Business Travel Show above).
