“This was our first ever exhibition, and I’m so glad we signed up to be a part of it! We were guided through the process by Emma and the team and set-up the day before the show was easy. We met a lot of quality prospects and met some really lovely people; visitors and fellow exhibitors alike! We would definitely recommend taking a Travel Row at the Group Leisure & Travel Show for anyone who is undecided about whether to exhibit. We have no regrets at all!”

“We were delighted to exhibit at this year’s Group Leisure & Travel Show at the NEC Birmingham. The show was very well organised and represented and provided us with the opportunity to meet up with both our loyal customers and new Group Travel Organisers. Being a Midlands based show it gives us the ideal platform to promote our Northern departure ports – Liverpool, Newcastle and Edinburgh (Rosyth) – to groups interested in sailing from the North, in addition to our Southern departures, Southampton and Dover. It was a successful show and we are looking forward to working with our customers on their new 2018 and 2019 group promotions, which will cover 228 ports of call worldwide. “

Ellie Fulcher, Sales Manager Groups, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

“The Group Leisure and Travel Show is invaluable to both operators and attractions. 2017’s show demonstrated that by bringing both attractions and operators together there is a thirst for tour innovation in the group tour market. Operators were engaged with our offer and making formal enquires, which has already resulted in confirmed bookings for 2018.”

Megan Pollexfen, Manager, Discover Newmarket
