Special Offer to the Tourist Trade

The Welsh Government – through Visit Wales – is inviting those Interested in promoting their business to the international travel trade, to join it at this year’s World Travel Market (WTM), the leading global event for the travel industry, taking place 7-9 November at ExCeL London.

Visit Wales says: “Exhibiting at WTM provides an opportunity to meet, network, negotiate and conduct business with more than 50,000 international travel professionals, from more than 38 sectors of the travel industry.  We’ve secured space for the Wales partners on the UKinbound stand, which is in a prime location at the front of the UK and Ireland Hall.

“To participate you must be interested and able to contract, sell through the Travel Trade and offer commission / net rates. Any accommodation providers must be Visit Wales or AA graded.  Activity providers need to go through the Visit Wales Accreditation Scheme where required.

“To support the recovery of the industry, heavily discounted Visit Wales rates are now available for a ‘partner pod’; our subsidy will enable eligible partners to join us at 2019 subsidised rates in spite of price rises for 2022 (subsidy of 50% off 2019 stand participation costs for Welsh tourism suppliers, subject to de minimis regulation).”

It says the cost of a subsidised pod would be £2,625 + VAT. “To secure your pod, please register by 29 July. For further information email traveltradewales@gov.wales.”
