Travel Forward

Travel has never been as inspiring, complex, nor as fast moving as it is today. As digital technologies enable customers to reach new places and have new experiences, they create new options for providers to deliver on business success goals.

Travel Forward is the leading travel technology show and the exciting event in the World Travel Market portfolio (WTM). Travel executives and innovative solution providers attend for 3 days of cutting-edge insights, open debate and unrivalled networking opportunities.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to tailor make the event experience to their individual interests and requirements, whether it is:

  • Hearing insightful case studies from industry peers
  • Participating in round-table debates
  • Meeting the latest innovative solution providers

Co-located with WTM Africa, part of Africa Travel Week, attendees will gain access to both shows.
