A day of ideas, offers and experts for group trips and holidays

The Group Leisure & Travel Show is a brilliant day for people who organise group trips and holidays on Thursday 7th October at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes. As ever, group travel organisers will look forward to meeting top attractions, tourist boards, accommodation providers, coach companies, tour operators, cruise lines and more – all ready to look after groups.

The best event in group travel is back

‘Excellent’, ‘super’, ‘very useful’ and ‘a must for group organisers’ was just some of the positive feedback received from group travel organisers and coach operators following the last show.

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.

Some testimonials from our last exhibition…

Harold Burke, just for groups!

“For us it’s the only event on the calendar that’s really aimed at groups and brings them all together in a convenient location. The Milton Keynes venue is in really good location. The show and the awards just keep ticking all the boxes and as long as they keep ticking all the boxes we’ll keep turning up.”

Ollie Burton, London Transport Museum

“We’re delighted to be exhibiting at the GLT Show for the first time in many years to promote all of our eight sights. We’ve got an exciting offer that we’re launching for the group’s market today which is our hidden London tours which are tours of disused tube stations, hidden tunnels and secret spaces on London’s transport system, taking you into some fascinating spaces.”.

Jackie Boustead, Whitworth Hall Hotel & Deer Park

“We’re really excited to generate more business and gain new contacts, following on from the success of last year’s show – events like this are really useful because it’s targeted at a specific audience.”
