Travel Technology Europe reports 7% increase in visitor numbers

Last week’s Travel Technology Europe show in London achieved a 7% increase in visitor numbers to 6,392 against 5,900 in 2016.

The record visitor numbers came as exhibitor numbers for the 14th annual event at Olympia rose by 43% to 140.

Most exhibitors have already rebooked their stands for 2018, which is due to take place on February 21-22 at the same venue.

Event director David Chapple said: “Travel Technology Europe has proven once again that is the leading technology show for the travel and hospitality markets in Europe.

“The show sold out weeks ago and we were delighted to see so many innovative suppliers with truly creative solutions at this year’s event.

“To achieve a visitor increase of 7% after similar growth last year is phenomenal.

“It’s both indicative of the growing and increasingly influential tech hubs we have in the UK, and testament to the quality of buyers who attend, the incredible content in our conference sessions and the sheer amount of business that takes place in just two days.

“The impact – current and potential – that technology has on the travel industry for travellers, sellers and buyers – is beyond exciting and we can’t wait to see Travel Technology Europe continue to grow and evolve to meet the needs of this industry.”
