Visit Ukraine participated in the most influential international exhibition WTM in London
Visit Ukraine joined the circle of participants of the international travel industry exhibition WTM London 2023. It was an important and unique experience where VU presented its information portal about Ukraine and innovative service platform Visit World. Our team was very enthusiastic about presenting our services, highlighting the diversity of tourist opportunities in Ukraine
From November 6 to 8, 2023, the leading international exhibition of the travel industry WTM London 2023 (World Travel Market London) was held in London. Visit Ukraine became a participant in the event - the project was presented at a nationwide stand organized by the State Tourism Development Agency of Ukraine.
As part of WTM London 2023, the team presented two services:
- Visit Ukraine – information portal about Ukraine;
- Visit World - a service platform for tourists, migrants, expats, which provides free information about the rules of entry and legal stay in all countries of the world for the purpose of tourism, work (business), study, treatment, obtaining a residence permit and/or citizenship.
WTM participants were introduced to the work of services, and also told about how the tourism sector works in Ukraine during the war. Everyone received an invitation to visit Ukraine after the victory. In the final, a raffle was held for our merch, which was presented to the visitors of the exhibition.
What is WTM London known for?
For 42 years, WTM has been the most influential 3-day event in the global travel industry. The event brings together tourism sector professionals from around the world - it is a place where ministers meet with business, make plans and establish professional relationships. According to the participants, the World Travel Market is an ideal platform for promoting your travel product. This year, 3,500,000 exhibitors from 184 countries took part in the exhibition.
The Ministerial Summit of the World Tourism Organization is also held as part of the exhibition, which is devoted to the most pressing issues of the development of world tourism.
Since 2002, WTM has been held in one of the largest modern exhibition centers in the British capital, ExCel.
