Travamigos took the 2019 World Travel Market (WTM) by storm, presenting their revolutionary group travel app with an exhibitor stand and slot in the show’s start-up showcase. Travamigos CEO and co-founder James Wormington says:

“It was great to be able to showcase Travamigos on the global stage to a crowd hungry for the latest travel industry news. This was our first stand and presentation at a major exhibition and it was a huge success.”

Held annually at the ExCel Centre in London, 2019 marked the 40th edition of the trade show, which ran for three days from the 4th to the 6th November.

Travamigos was one of nearly 5,000 exhibitors who came to network, discuss the latest travel trends and highlight their products, destinations and services. “We had some amazing feedback from the people we spoke to and have follow-up meetings with over 50 tourist boards who are really keen to work with us,” says James.

During a well-received pitch at WTM’s prestigious start-up showcase, James presented his app, which allows like-minded travellers to connect and plan dream trips all over the world. To date, Travamigos has had over 1000 user generated groups in the UK and gained numerous five-star reviews on the app store.
