WTM London is attended by over 5,000 business representatives and the exhibition is attended by over 51,000 professionals from around the world.

Promoting Plovdiv and Bulgaria as a year-round destination is a priority in advertising campaigns on the British market. Our country is distinguished by a variety of cultural and natural attractions, which have attracted the interest of tourists from Great Britain and because of the fact that they can be visited all year round, and not only in the summer and winter seasons.

A record number of representatives of the tourism business presented themselves at the Bulgarian national stand - 23 tour operators, travel agents, hotels and municipalities.

The Minister of Tourism Zaritsa Dinkova also participated in the largest world exhibition for professionals in the tourism industry, who also held numerous meetings.

The Municipality of Plovdiv, through the Tourism department, presented the great variety of cultural and historical sights, the rich cultural and event calendar of the city and the opportunities for the various types of tourism that Plovdiv and the region have.

The guests of the Bulgarian stand had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the possibilities for wine and culinary tourism in North-Eastern Bulgaria, the Thracian Lowland and the Rose Valley, South Sakar, the Struma Valley, the Western and Central Danube Plain. Each of the regions was promoted with a wine typical of the terroir, as well as through their maps showing the wine routes and associated tourist attractions.

WTM is the largest trade fair for travel industry professionals and the world's second largest travel trade fair after ITB - Berlin. In 2023, WTM London will be held for the 43rd time.
