Africa stand at WTM
I do love visiting exhibitions at the London Excel centre, it is one of those spaces which completely transforms itself for events. One event which i feel i can never not attend is World Travel Market. It is magnificent. Every single country in the world’s tourism boards all term up once year to show off what is great about them and why they should be mentioned. I was lucky enough to attend on their Festival night, which is normally when most stands put on live performances and give out samples of their food. I do love the atmosphere at World Travel Market as there is a buzz in the air and as i am almost obsessed with discovering new places, i enjoy being drawn in to stands and being told about their new tourism ventures,
The UAE and Dubai never fail to make an effort for World Travel Market and this year they had an edible skyline of Dubai. They also had a very patient live Falcon on display which reminded me of my travels to the country and how much i enjoyed it.

Legoland coming soon to Dubai
Dubai also announced their new venture in the form of their own Pixar studios and their own Legoland and Bollywood Parks. I can’t wait to see these in action in the future. They sound amazing and they were giving our free popcorn on the night to entice customers.
