WTM Invites Industry Buyers to Apply for Buyers’ Club Membership

World Travel Market is inviting the industry’s most senior buyers to apply for Buyers’ Club membership for WTM 2013. The club is for the travel industry’s most senior buyers with direct responsibility for purchasing, such as a buyer for a tour operator looking to purchase product from exhibitors to put in its brochures, or an IT director looking to purchase a technology for their organisation. 

WTM 2012 saw more than 8,000 Buyers Club members attend the event, helping the show to generate a record £1,860 million in industry deals – a 13% increase on WTM 2011’s £1,625 million.

Membership is open to the entire travel industry with a strict selection process in place to ensure that only the most senior industry buyers are granted membership. To apply, buyers should visit www.wtmlondon.com/registerbuyers

WTM Buyers’ Club facilitates business opportunities between buyers and exhibitors to meet, network and conclude business deals.

At event benefits include the WTM Speed Networking sessions (on the first and last days of the event) and exclusive WTM Buyers’ Club lounges and access to private meeting rooms and fast-track cloakroom.

Year-round WTM Buyers’ Club benefits include annual discounts on trade conferences and opportunities to attend WTM Buyers’ Club Think Tanks on key issues within the industry.

Raj Thakkar, WTM Buyers’ Club Manager, said: “WTM Buyers’ Club is the industry’s original and only truly global buyers club. All buyers should register at www.wtmlondon.com to guarantee their entry to WTM 2013. WTM 2012 was a great success for WTM Buyers’ Club members, with them agreeing contracts worth £1,860 million with exhibitors, thanks to an array of facilities including the expanded WTM Speed Networking programme.”
