About Global Travel Week

Jacobs Media Group (JMG) is proud to present the newly launched Global Travel Week powered by Connections.

Global Travel Week powered by Connections is the event that unites decision-makers in all markets of travel, featuring; Aspire, ATAS, Connections Luxury, Resilience Council, Unity Through Tourism, Travel Weekly and Travolution, all of which are part of JMG.

The event will showcase JMG’s worldwide portfolio, where the travel trade industry will come together to network, do business, cooperate through tourism, and expand opportunities.

The event welcomes global tourist boards and their private sector to meet and do business with qualified buyers from the UK, as well as an overseas contingent. Attendees will represent the luxury, meetings incentives, wellbeing, adventure, weddings and mainstream leisure segments.

Global Travel Week powered by Connections features a number of initiatives including highly-targeted one-to-one meetings conducted in the Connections Way for the luxury and mainstream sectors, insightful panel discussions, networking receptions, working lunches and a conference on travel technology.

There is a vital and optimal window of opportunity to support your destination in its roadmap to recovery and resurgence.

Our aim is to present a platform to engage international trade, to grant access to your private sector to meet a targeted audience from around the globe, and to raise awareness, knowledge and desire to travel to your destination and its regions.

Global Travel Week powered by Connections is taking place from Monday 27 September - Thursday 30 September 2021. Members of Connections Luxury are also invited to a private reception on the evening of Sunday 26 September.

The event will be held at Kia Oval in London and will be open to delegates from 08.00-18.00 from Monday 27 - Thursday 30 September.

A virtual one-to-one meetings programme will be held from Monday 4 - Tuesday 5 October for delegates who are unable to attend the event in-person.

It means that the Global Travel Week is organised by Connections, and utilises the Connections Way of doing business.

Connections is the next generation of doing business. Designed for decision-makers, Connections has pioneered a new way of building trust through memorable experiences that lead to long-lasting business relationships through the Connections Way.

Connections was born in 2014. Inspired by the science of mind and behaviour, we pioneered the Connections Way, a new-age networking concept which combines one-to-one meetings and memorable experiences to forge long-lasting business relationships.

Today, the Connections Way of doing business has been experienced by thousands of leaders who have become part of our global community. Senior executives from around the world can connect and transform their businesses by utilising the Connections Way, and contribute to progressive conversations that will shape the future of their industry.
