World Travel Market London 2015, the leading global event for the travel industry, is calling on bloggers to apply for the expanded WTM London Bloggers’ Speed Networking event.
The 90-minute session, which takes place on Thursday 5 November at 10.30am at entrance S11 on the WTM London Exhibition Floor, will see 100 leading industry bloggers hold quick-fire business meeting with exhibitors interested in increasing their media exposure.
WTM London Bloggers Speed Networking was launched last year with 236 exhibitors meeting with 70 bloggers during the one hour session.
Bloggers will need to have registered for WTM London to apply for a place, and then a separate registration for the speed networking will be available in August on the WTM website.
World Travel Market Portfolio Press & PR Manager Paul Nelson said: “The number of bloggers attending World Travel Market has increased dramatically over the past few years as the power and influence of bloggers continues to grow stronger.
“Last year’s launch event was such a success we have expended both the duration of the event to 90 minutes and the number of bloggers to 100 to give exhibitors an even greater opportunity for exhibitors to discuss business opportunities with bloggers.”
WTM Bloggers Speed Networking is in association with Travel Bloggers Unite.
