Institute of Travel Management makes 2020 venue switch
In May 2019, the Institute of Travel Management (ITM) hosted what it claims was its “largest and most successful conference in its 63-year history”.
Following the event at the Brighton Hilton Metropole, however, ITM announced its intention to hold the 2020 conference at the new ICC Wales (pictured while under construction in 2018). However, during early planning ITM says it has identified ‘new objectives’ that required the event to switch to an alternative location.
Organisers say that delegate feedback has led ITM to return to the Brighton Hilton Metropole in May 2020.
An ITM statement read: “We are confident this decision [returning to Brighton] will be popular with our membership, which now stands at more than 4,000 industry colleagues.” CN has asked ITM to clarify what these 'new objectives' are but a response has not yet been received.
A spokesperson from ICC Wales replied to a CN request for comment, saying: “We wish ITM every success for their 2020 conference, and we look forward to working with them on a future event.”
The ITM Conference will run from 12-13 May 2020. The 2019 event attracted 535 delegates.
