History of WTCE

Since its launch in 2012, WTCE has gone from strength to strength and helped the onboard industry to create and discover the latest innovations.

"We've come to WTCE to explore sustainability innovations and trends, which appear to be at the forefront of the show. So far, we've been discovering new projects, meeting people, and finding partners. WTCE is an inspiring event."

"This event is vital for catching up with our 22 airline customers and planning for the future. It's a fantastic networking opportunity and a chance to see new products. The organisation is excellent, and the food is superb."

"This event has proven invaluable year after year, with our team already rebooking for the fifth consecutive time. The WTCE Connect app has been particularly helpful, offering detailed search capabilities and facilitating connections.

Our Partners

At WTCE, everyone belongs. We cultivate a culture of inclusion at all our events, where the very things that make each of us unique are celebrated. Our exhibitors, attendees, partners and event colleagues are people from a wide variety of backgrounds, who make our shows stronger and our collective experience richer.

Our Sustainability pledge to decarbonise the events industry

At RX, we are serious about sustainability. We are founding members of the Net Zero Carbon Events pledge to make our company, our shows and the wider events industry net zero. We commit to being Net Zero by 2040 and to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

We will continue to publish our sustainability pathway to net zero, setting out our reduction strategy with key milestones for all our shows. Given the complex nature of our supply chain and the emissions associated with a show, it is only by working together as an industry that we will be able to reduce our impact. We are building a company of net zero heroes to take action and ensure a sustainable future.
