  • Here some of our top tips for a successful show:

    Before the show:

    • Update your exhibitor profile – The Exhibitor Directory is the number one place were C-level decision makers search for new suppliers to meet with at the show as well as to book in meeting for the virtual event. Login to the Exhibitor Portal and make sure your company profile is up-to-date.
    • Promote your brand with our FREE PR & Marketing opportunities – From being featured in our Media Diary of Events with your product launch to promoting your press release on the official website, we have plenty of opportunities available to make your target audience aware of your presence at Travel Forward.
    • Generate new leads with Connect Me – our networking tool will help you to find new buyers that match your business needs. Connect Me allows you to connect with Travel Forward attendees as well as with WTM London buyers and arrange meetings during the live event and at Travel Forward Virtual on 10 & 11 November. Make sure to register your exhibitor badges in the Exhibitor Portal to get access to Connect Me.
    • Stand Build Help – we take away the hassle with SmarSpace, our in-house stand build and design service. Get in touch with the team to discuss your ideas that will drive traffic to your stand.
  • During the show:

    • Be prepared for build-up – Your health and safety is the most important to us. Make sure you wear onsite boots and a high vis vest. We are minimising touch points onsite. So please make sure you either download your badge on your mobile phone and or print it out in colour at home and bring it with you onsite – this will not only guarantee you a quick but safe access to the show.
    • Get your stand business ready – This year you won’t be able to take collateral with you to minimise touch points and to keep you safe. So make sure your profile on the Exhibitor Portal is up-to-date so that attendees can find you to meet at your stand.
    • Wear comfortable shoes and stay hydrated – It sounds obvious but wearing comfortable shoes are important when walking around a large exhibition ground like ExCeL Also don’t forget your umbrella, a warm coat and a jumper to wrap up. Make sure to bring along a reusable water bottle to keep you hydrated throughout the show; you can refill your bottle at several water fountains throughout Excel and at the Just a Drop stand, our WTM Portfolio charity.
    • We are here to help you – Our team is always happy to help you in the run up to the show. Simply contact our Customer Service team . If you have any queries onsite, come and visit our Info Point (located in the middle of the concourse between halls N5 and S5).
