Whilst inspiration and education are high on our agenda, be prepared to work, this is your conference and it is a “doing” conference with more round table activity, real life case studies and sharing of expertise than ever before. We are excited to highlight some of the features of this year’s programme.

Buyer Focus Group
This year the buyer focus group returns in the form of huddles on the morning of Wednesday 1 May. This closed session is to share best practice in specific and important areas of a travel programme. This is for Buyer Members ONLY to network, discuss their issues and learn from each other in a confidential environment. In addition you will meet our sponsors during a networking afternoon on Tuesday 30 April which will give you the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet potential suppliers with new products and services.
The ITM Marketplace
A networking space with a difference; connect with fellow delegates, catch up on emails and meet with our sponsors in their dedicated pods. All coffee breaks, lunch breaks and afternoon tea will be served here.
This year, our Networking Reception will take place on Tuesday 30 April – everyone is invited to join the fun, meet old and new friends.
Join us for a night to remember at the highly anticipated Gala Dinner and ITM Buyer Achievement Awards, taking place on the evening of Wednesday 1 May 2019. Now in its seventh year, the ITM awards recognise procurement techniques and travel-specific category expertise. If you have demonstrated innovation and excellence, or if you know of someone who has, then submit your nomination today. Click here for more information. The entry deadline is 22nd March 2019.
