World Travel Market witnessed a 10 percent increase in visitors this year, according to unaudited figures. It is thought that 26, 908 people attended the event over the four days, with a 22 percent increase in senior industry buyers attending the show on the first day. As a result, 250 Meridien Club members met at the speed networking sessions, compared to 85 in 2009. Visitor figures are also up 18 percent for Tuesday, 16 percent on Wednesday and 34 percent on Thursday. “The fact the number of year on year visitors increased every day of WTM - including the 34% increase in visitors on the final day – is particularly impressive and is great news for exhibitors, allowing them to conduct even more business across all four days of the event,” said WTM Exhibition Director Simon Press.
