|Endless opportunities await the approximately 6 000 global, regional and local travel professionals, stakeholders and media who are expected to attend WTM Africa 2019. For those Travel Buyers with serious purchasing power, the WTM Africa Buyers’ Club delivers stand-out, concrete opportunities to interact with Exhibitors.
WTM Buyers’ Club members at #WTMA19 will receive distinctive badges, marking them out as serious buyers, as well as having access to a dedicated WTM Buyers’ Club Lounge; an online diary for easy meeting arrangement, prior to the event itself; networking event invitations and speed networking sessions. The speed networking sessions, in particular, have proved invaluable as they pair pre-matched Buyers and Exhibitors for 5-minute meetings, getting to the heart of business requirements and laying the foundation for long-term partnerships.
“The pre-approval process for the WTM Buyers’ Club guarantees that participating Buyers are serious players with a track record of concluding deals,” says Megan Oberholzer, Travel Tourism & Sports Portfolio General Manager at Reed Exhibitions. “We effectively bring together a global collective of serious Travel Buyers and curate introductions with key Exhibitors in their areas of interest to help conclude deals more efficiently, for the good of the continental industry”.
In 2018, nearly 700 members of the global WTM Buyers’ Club attended WTM Africa, with that number set to grow at #WTMA19. “The opportunity to guarantee one-on-one face-time with Exhibitors in the midst of such a massively busy event is invaluable,” says Oberholzer.
