WTM Latin America postponed to April 2021

WTM Latin America, the leading global event for the Latin American travel industry, postponed to April 2021, while 2020 event cancelled.

Due to the continuing escalation of the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil, Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone the 2020 edition of WTM Latin America. The event, which had initially been scheduled for October 2020, is now planned to take place on 6, 7 and 8 April 2021 at the same venue; Expo Center Norte in São Paulo.

Our number one priority is the health and safety of all our visitors, exhibitors, partners and staff”, mentions the announcement.

We have had to respond to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the ongoing conversations with our customers whose welfare is our number one priority. Due to the uncertainty in the region and around the world, with many of our clients facing company travel bans, we have made the decision not to go ahead with this year’s event. Our thoughts are with all those affected in these difficult times.

We also recognize that business has to continue. With this in mind, over the coming months, we will be creating ways of keeping our travel community connected to support and collaborate to keep our world moving during this difficult period.

In November, we will launch WTM Virtual, a digital event that will bring together the portfolio’s four brands – WTM Latin America, WTM Africa, ATM and WTM London – to promote interaction between exhibitors and visitors, provide quality content and information about the tourist chain and other activities.

We would like to thank you for your patience and support during this difficult and uncertain time. Please stay connected on our official channels for more news over the next few months” reports the announcement.  

WTM Latin America is the three-day must-attend business-to-business (B2B) event which brings the world to Latin America and promotes Latin America to the world. Through its industry networks, unrivalled global reach, WTM Latin America creates personal and business opportunities, providing customers with quality contacts, content and communities.
