  • Where does WTM Connect Asia take place?

    In 2017 WTM Connect Asia takes place across two prestigious venues in our host city of Penang:

    The Eastern & Oriental Hotel

    We are delighted that The Eastern & Oriental Hotel will be the venue for the opening day of WTM Connect Asia. Located in the heart of George Town, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, the hotel pays homage to the elegance of the British colonial era.
