In the Tourisims world The first week of November is known as the World Travel Market week in London The whole world for a few days is concentrated within the walls of 'the ExCeL Exhibition Centre and the team slowmotion obviously has participated too.
The WTM has given us the opportunity to get valuable contacts and forge partnerships that will bring the unexpected news in the nerest future.
The stand of the Region of Sicily and the Sign. Daniel Licciardello warmly welcomed us by giving us the opportunity to show our material and get the necessary contacts for the growth of our project.
The mayor of Syracuse Garozzo was present and he acknowledged the team welcoming the initiative of coming to the WTM: "It 'a matter of pride to see a start-up like slowmotion here at WTM after only a few months of activity'! "
Sicily has a potential yet to be discovered and developed, occasions such as the WTM are ideal for creating a fertile substrate ! Tourism and photography holidays is a niche but it attracts the attention of a growing portion of the travel market a kind of tourist/traveler willing to explore the true nature of the place. Sicily is perfectly suited to photography thanks to its culture, traditions, architecture and landscapes tastes and incredibles people.
"I'm proud of my city that has given me the opportunity to get to this point with my idea and it always , tahnks to its beauty, inspired my artistic and emotional side. Being now in the largest tourism market in the world, with Garozzo the mayor, the deputy mayor and the stand of the Sicilian Region is a small step towards the realization of a dream. Sicily deserves attention, and this stand is a demonstration of the willingness of the region to make the step up toward tourism, and Slowmotion of course is here. "Roberto Zampino
