WTM Buyers Club Buyer status is exclusively for pre-qualified travel industry professionals and as well as the recognition, Buyer’s Club membership comes with a number of fantastic benefits:
- Access to our WTM Buyers’ Club Lounge
- Online diary where you can arrange your meetings with exhibitors prior to the event
- Invitation to attend networking events
- Free pre-scheduled appointments system with exhibitors
- Speed networking sessions
Participation in the speed networking sessions is one of the most popular benefits of membership. These highly engaging and popular events bring together exhibitors and senior buyers during two sessions. The sessions help to broker connections and business opportunities between buyers and exhibitors, matched on purchasing requirements.
The two 90 minute sessions take place on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st April. Buyers are seated, with exhibitors invited to hold five minute mini-meetings with the buyers of their choice, based on regional and product purchasing requirements.
Buyers are grouped and colour matched to the regions that they most wish to buy from. Foundations for new contacts are agreed and long term business partnerships formed.
