Fiona Jeffery OBE is to leave World Travel Market (WTM) after 26 years at the exhibition, it has been announced.
Jeffery is to leave the exhibition to “pursue other interests in the global travel and tourism industry” but will remain as chairman of water aid charity Just A Drop.
She set up the charity in 1998 and also launched World Responsible Tourism Day and the Ministers’ Programme with UNWTO.
WTM will continue to be organised under director Simon Press.
“I am sad to go after all this time but proud of the achievements that have been realised by myself and the World Travel Market team”, said Jeffery. “I leave behind a business that has grown to become a strong global brand.”
