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.

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.”
