WTM 2007: Travel Weekly Passport competition

Every year at WTM Travel Weekly’s Passport competition gives agents the chance to win amazing prizes, including hotel stays, flights and passes to attractions and theme parks.

The competition – part of World Travel Market Agents’ Day, aimed at helping members of the trade get the most out of the event – also gives travel agents the opportunity to learn about the products and services of operators, airlines and tourist boards.

When agents arrive on Thursday morning, they will be handed a Travel Weekly passport. Inside there will be questions about sponsors (see box below). As agents visit each sponsor’s stand and answer the questions, they will receive a stamp.

All they need to do then is hand the passport in at the Travel Weekly booth on the boulevard and it will be entered into a prize draw at the WTM Conference Set, Platinum Suite at 3pm. Entrants must be present to be eligible for prizes!

The X Factor 2006 runner-up Ray Quinn will be giving out the prizes, as well as performing for the crowd and chatting to winners.

Travel Weekly head of events Penny Akam said: “Passport a great way to learn about what’s on offer at WTM. Visiting the different stands to find answers helps open up a dialogue with stand hosts and helps agents get to grips with products and destinations. In the afternoon, there’ll be the chance to win fabulous prizes.”
