Date Posted: 23/05/2015

The Group Travel Organisers Association’s (GTOA) Showcase Weekend will take place at the Newcastle Marriott Hotel Gosforth Park between 18th and 20th September.

GTOA members can look forward to a ship visit on Boudicca, networking sessions and familiarisation trips at its Showcase Weekend which will be held in Newcastle this September.

The event brings together group organisers and associate members from all over the UK to participate in its programme of business and social sessions.

Highlights will include a choice of five specially tailored familiarisation trips to local attractions including Hadrian’s Wall, Durham Cathedral, Alnwick Gardens, Lindisfarne and Beamish Industrial Museum. 

Other elements of the Showcase programme include GTOA Branch AGMs, networking sessions, dinner with Northumbrian entertainment and a ship visit on board Fred.Olsen Cruise Lines’ Boudicca.

GTOA chief executive, Mike Bugsgang (pictured), said: “The Showcase provides a great opportunity for our members to get together to plan their itineraries for 2016 and beyond, as well as experiencing a part of Britain that is generally underutilised by groups.”
