The event will take place in Expo Center Norte in São Paulo from 4 – 6 April
Registration for the fifth edition of WTM Latin America, the main global event in the travel industry in Latin America, is now open. The event will be held from 4 – 6 April in Expo Center Norte in São Paulo, jointly with the 47th Braztoa Business Event.
This business–to–business event, which is entirely for networking and business generation, will welcome the main tour operators, travel agents, journalists of all nationalities and buyers who are interested in getting to know what’s new in the industry in terms of products, services and technologies and to do business deals.
WTM Latin America & Braztoa Business Event estimates that the 2016 edition was responsible for generating US$ 370 million in commercial agreements. It is expected that 2017 will generate an even greater amount of business, as it adopts a new online tool that will connect all the visitors and exhibitors even before the event begins.
The event will also present and debate trends, while talks and seminars with the main names in the industry will increase understanding about technology and marketing as applied to tourism. It will also foster meetings between exhibitors and buyers in the hotly-disputed Speed Networking and Meet the Media and Bloggers sessions.
WTM Latin America 2017 & 47th Braztoa Business Event will also continue to offer its successful Hosted Buyers Programme, including the Braztoa Caravans, which sine the first edition have been bringing selected buyers to the event from Brazil and the world to boost the business done at the show.
“WTM Latin America, which has had Braztoa as its main partner since the beginning, is coming up to its fifth edition with the mission of offering visitors, exhibitors and buyers the best experience possible for discovering the opportunities that Latin American tourism has to offer. It brings together in Expo Center Norte the industry’s main representatives and the best initiatives for consolidating business deals”, says WTM Latin America’s director, Lawrence Reinisch.
