WTM unveils sports pavilion for this year’s event

World Travel Market has unveiled a new sports pavilion at WTM 2010 after its conference revealed the importance of the sports tourism sector. Lords, Wimbledon, Twickenham and Wembley will all exhibit in the pavilion, which will be situated in the UK and Ireland region of WTM 2010, as well as Premiership football grounds such as Old Trafford (Manchester United), Stamford Bridge (Chelsea) and Emirates Stadium (Arsenal). “Sports Tourism is worth a staggering $51 billion a year and World Travel Market is the first exhibition to recognise its growing importance to the industry, with the launch of the Sports Tourism seminar programme and Sports Pavilion,” said WTM Sales Executive Christian Vicente. “The Sports Pavilion is an exciting initiative which allows some of the world’s leading sports stadiums to promote their historic and prestigious venues, stadium tours and museums to the global travel trade for both leisure travellers and conferences and events.”
