October 29, 2019
Onboard Hospitality is pleased to confirm it will again partner with the organisers of WTCE to present an inspirational Taste of Travel programme in Hamburg for 2020. In response to industry demand, the programme will be largely themed around the topic of sustainability.
Located in Hall A3, surrounded by many first-time exhibitors, networking areas and VIP Buyers Lounge, the programme will be moderated and designed by former Onboard Hospitality editor, Jo Austin.
The 2020 programme will address current and future issues around packaging, supply chain transparency and next-gen eco demands. There will be live demonstrations from top chefs and exclusive presentations from passenger experience professionals and experts in sustainability. More details will be released in the coming months
The leading event for the travel catering, onboard retail and passenger comfort industries, WTCE will run at the Hamburg Messe from March 31- April 2 2020, as part of Passenger Experience Week, and aims to be a hotbed of innovation.
Today’s passengers expect the services available to them in the air or on the railway to mirror the standards of any out of home outlet so innovations towards a greener offering, a connected journey and passenger wellbeing will be top of the agenda for most attending buyers.

Among those exhibitors focused on the sustainability topic will be The Humble Co with its bamboo toothbrush and Global C with compostable cutlery sets and full recyclable meal kits.
The What’s New Onboard and Spotlight on Travel Apparel areas will also return to the exhibition, and the free-to-attend Drinks Reception will be sponsored by Heineken on March 31.The Business Meeting Hub – a dedicated space for attendees to schedule on-site meetings with potential new partners – will return to the event, with VIPs able to book tables in advance.
