Travel Forward is the new technology-focussed event co-located with WTM London. Over 60 new exhibitors revolving around the future of technology in the travel and hospitality industry made their presence.  For example, Travel Ledger, a B2B billing and settlement platform, is built using Ethereum Blockchain technology. It automates the travel purchasing and payment process across the entire distribution chain replacing the manual billing.



As per Roberto Da Re, CEO, Travel Ledger, WTM London and Travel Forward will help to raise awareness of their project ahead of the launch in 2019.



‘Fly Now Pay Later’ provides the hassle-free way to pay for travel.  WTM London is welcoming new exhibitors from the world of sport – Wembley National Stadium and Manchester City FC.



WTM London, Senior Director, Simon Press, said: “With 170 new exhibitors – covering premier sporting venues, prime-location accommodation, new and established destinations and attractions, transport providers and technology innovators – this year’s WTM London and Travel Forward boasts the greatest collection so far of diverse travel and tourism organisations from across the globe under one roof at ExCeL in London.”
