World Travel Market London will going ahead with its packed schedule of events at ExCeL London from November 7 to 9, despite planned industrial action on days one and three of the show, organisers announced.

Juliette Losardo, Exhibition Director WTM London, said: “It’s disappointing that strikes have been called on the first and last days of World Travel Market London, but our message is - business as usual.

'National Rail services coming into the capital will be affected, but Transport for London services are operating as scheduled. ExCeL London is a world-class venue with infrastructure to remedy issues such as these. If you’d normally rely on National Rail services, consider local accommodation, or utilise ExCel London’s car parking facilities,' Losardo said.

“Over the past few years our sector has navigated far worse, and we’re confident the travel community will be out in force.”

Plan your route

On Monday November 7 and Wednesday, November 9, the RMT union has voted to strike on National Rail services, meaning National Rail services into Central London will run on a drastically reduced timetable.

However, Transport for London (TfL) services - including London Underground, London Overground, the DLR and the newly opened Elizabeth Line, will operate as normal on this date.

Event attendees using public transport are advised to check their route on the morning of the show using the TfL website (www.tfl.gov.uk) or using the “TfL Go” mobile application.

Visitors can use Emirates Cable Car to get to and from ExCeL, with a 50% discount on fares on offer for anyone showing their WTM registration pass.

Losardo added: “It’s not too late to join the travel industry’s foremost event. There are alternative routes, so we’re advising delegates to simply plan their route ahead of time.’’
