Julie Peasgood sailing back to GLT Show

Accomplished travel writer, TV presenter and cruise expert Julie Peasgood has been confirmed as the second celebrity speaker for the free Seminar Theatre programme at this year’s Group Leisure & Travel Show.

It will be Julie’s second appearance at the exhibition, which takes place this year on Thursday 10th October at a new venue – the Marshall Arena at Stadium MK, Milton Keynes.

Julie, whose career spans over 40 years of theatre and television including Emmerdale, Brookside, The Alan Titchmarsh Show and the new Russell T Davies series Years and Years, was one of the celebrity speakers at the 2016 event and has been a columnist for Group Leisure & Travel Magazine for the last few years, sharing invaluable travel advice and cruise tips.

Julie will join travel expert Simon Calder in the Seminar Theatre. A third celebrity speaker will be announced in the near future.

About the show, julie said:

“I loved speaking at the Group Leisure and Travel Show a couple of years ago – everyone was so welcoming. This time I shall be talking about cruises (as I’m about to embark on my 77th!) and I’m really looking forward to returning – to see familiar friendly faces and meet new ones!”

The biggest, most important event in group travel

‘Successful’, ‘fantastic’, ‘fabulous’ and ‘a must for group organisers’: was just some of the positive feedback about the 2018 show, received from group travel organisers and coach operators.

Every year, the GLT Show is the perfect opportunity for GTOs and group travel buyers to meet and chat to exhibitors from destinations, accommodation providers, and tour operators, attractions, ticketing agencies, stately homes, cruise companies and shopping centres. Deals are done, trips are booked, and visitors walk away with inspiration for at least another year of group trips and holidays.

We’re moving!

The Group Leisure & Travel Show 2019 will take place at a new venue on Thursday 10th October next year at The Marshall Arena at Stadium MK, Milton Keynes.

Organisers say there has already been a “fantastic response” to the new venue for 2019.

The black-tie Group Leisure & Travel Awards dinner will be staged the previous evening on Wednesday 9th October, 2019 at the Hilton Hotel, which is immediately adjacent to the stadium and halls.

Stand bookings for the 2019 show and Awards partnerships for the next promotion can be made by contacting Sharon Yandell on 01908 613323 or by emailing sharon.y@yandellmedia.com. The message is book early, as both events are set to be a complete sell-out.

Testimonials…

Kate Howe of Stevenage Travel

“I’ve spoken to LeisurePlex, Warner Leisure, Kew Gardens, See Tickets and Culture Coventry and it has been good to get a variety of ideas. It has also been great to hear about different theatre shows such as Come From Away, Nine to Five and The Waitress.”

Roger Tacq group organiser for the Huntingdon U3A

“It has been absolutely fantastic today, we’ve really enjoyed coming back to the GLT Show. The speakers have been great and Gyles Brandreth was on good form. Because of Brexit we’ve been looking at different UK destinations and attractions to visit with our group and there has been so many of them at the show today to speak to.”.

Anna Fletcher from Cotswold Tourism

“The show has been really busy today, we’ve had lots of different types of people coming to the stand and lots of genuine interest in what we offer. A few years ago people were asking where the Cotswolds were but now it’s a case of us telling them about everything that is on offer because the Cotswolds is well and truly on the map.”
