Travel technology is an increasingly important area for the industry, which has been demonstrated by the astronomical growth at WTM over the past few years and the decision to create ‘a show within a show’ concept.

“The year-round relationship will see The Travel Tech Show at WTM and Amadeus create a body of analysis and information that will benefit the whole industry.”
