Tom Nutley, one of international travel and tourism’s most experienced, innovative, and respected figures, is poised to break new ground – with the help of .travel, the Internet domain name specifically created for the travel and tourism industry.

Over the past three years, Nutley has searched to find a “home” the industry can call its own. His search is now over as he launches The Travel Club in the heart of London’s West End on September 29.

For 30 years, Nutley has been the man behind creating and expanding an impressive portfolio of regional, sector, and global exhibitions, including Arabian Travel Market, Luxury Travel Market, EIBTM, and the flagship World Travel Market.

“.Travel and The Travel Club have a great deal in common,” said Nutley. “Both are helping to provide essential services dedicated to the international travel and tourism industry. Together we will help bind the industry into a more cohesive, more powerful universal movement that has major impact on economy, jobs, and lifestyle worldwide. Together the industry will become stronger and more focused.”

“Through the continuing success of exhibitions, it has been proven that travel business is best conducted face to face,” said Nutley. “However, I always wondered what happens at other times of the year?” is that central place where during those other times of the year the travel industry can conduct business in a relaxed, convenient environment, hold meetings, conferences, product launches, socialize, and network.
