Global Travel Week, powered by Connections

The new annual international travel trade event - created for senior industry professionals to build trust through memorable experiences that lead to long-lasting business relationships.

To support the recovery and resurgence of the travel industry, Jacobs Media Group launched the annual Global Travel Week powered by Connections in 2021 to offer unrivalled insight and connectivity through its worldwide portfolio.

The new annual travel trade event brings together decision-makers from across the global travel industry to network, do business, cooperate through tourism and expand opportunities. Travel sectors covered include luxury, meetings & incentives, wellbeing, adventure, weddings, mainstream travel and travel technology.

Designed in the pioneering 'Connections' networking format, Global Travel Week welcomes worldwide destinations and their private sector representatives to meet leading buyers through highly targeted one-to-one meetings, complemented by a variety of destination-inspired experiences.

Travel leaders in attendance also benefit from insightful and focused content sessions delivered throughout by Jacobs Media Group's market-leading travel brands including Travel Weekly UK; Aspire; Unity Through Tourism; the Global Travel & Tourism Resilience Council; the Association of Touring and Adventure Suppliers (ATAS) and Travolution.

The inaugural event saw over 300 decision-makers from across 40 nationalities come together in over 4,000 one-to-one meetings. Global Travel Week 2021 was supported by the Italian National Tourist Board as Country Partner and Visit Portugal as Premier Partner. 

Jacobs Media Group will host a Middle East edition of Global Travel Week from 27-30 March 2022 in Muscat Oman. Global Travel Week powered by Connections will return to London from September 25-28, 2022.
