WTM London and Travel Forward 2021 will have a COVID testing facility inside ExCeL so visitors who need to take a test before flying home can do so without having to leave the venue. The service is being offered by ExpressTest by Cignpost, one of the UK’s leading testing providers and an ABTA partner. Both PCR and lateral flow tests are available, with PCR results delivered by 10pm the following day and lateral flow results within 40 minutes.
With over 3 million tests done to date Cignpost ExpressTest has 36 testing sites around the UK and is sole provider at London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham and Edinburgh Airports.
Christian Corney, CEO of ExpressTest by Cignpost said: “We are delighted to be working with WTM 2021 as official testing partner, providing both gold-standard PCR and lateral flow tests for exhibitors and delegates alike. ExpressTest has been at the forefront of testing to help the travel industry operate through the pandemic; it’s a privilege to be partnered with this important event which delivers the platform to plan for the recovery and future of the sector.”
Simon Press, WTM London Exhibition Director, said: “Having an onsite test facility takes the hassle out of COVID testing and means it is one less thing our delegates and exhibitors from overseas need to worry about.”
WTM London takes place from November 1-3 2021, at ExCeL, London, and will be followed by WTM & TF Virtual on November 8-9.
