The session, formerly called “Meet The Media & Bloggers”, is another opportunity to put digital influencers in contact with WTM Latin America’s exhibitors in a dynamic, efficient and objective way. In five-minute mini-meetings, influencers will be seated at tables and the exhibitors will go to them in accordance with each one’s interest profiles.

“The number of digital influencers has soared over the last few years, particularly in the travel industry, where consumers turn to blogs, videos and articles to decide their trips. The presence of influencers at the event has also registered a marked increase, and the encounters in the Speed Networking session boost the long-term relationship between the market’s players, the visibility of the brands and the realisation of large future business deals” says Thais.
