World Travel Market opens today
The World Travel Market (WTM) – the world’s biggest travel show – opened in London today. Now in its 30th year, the WTM is, according to its website, “a unique opportunity for the whole global travel trade to meet, network, negotiate and conduct business under one roof”.
Alan Winde, minister of finance, economic development and tourism in the Western Cape, visited the Cape Town stand at the WTM.
“It’s great to be at the World Travel Market in London. This platform is where we are going to be setting up Cape Town and the Western Cape as the tourism destination for the world in the next 10 years,” he said.
