LONDON — World Travel Market London organizers have issued an update following news that train service into central London will run on a drastically reduced timetable due to a strike.
WTM is going ahead with a packed schedule of events at ExCeL London from Nov. 7-9, despite planned industrial action on days one and three of the show.
There is good news, however: Transport for London (TfL) services – including London Underground, London Overground, the DLR and the newly opened Elizabeth Line – will operate as normal on these dates.
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’ app.
Says Juliette Losardo, Exhibition Director WTM London: “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 utilize ExCel London’s car parking facilities.”
And as Losardo notes, “over the past few years our sector has navigated far worse, and we’re confident the travel community will be out in force!”
