A buzz has already built around the show. The event, which will be marking its 20th anniversary this year, has attracted more than 200 exhibitors, including the highest number of coach companies ever to be featured in the Coach Display Area.

Stands will be manned by everyone from Travelsphere and BBC Tours to Warner Leisure Hotels and MSC Cruises.

The Seminar Theatre is another huge draw for visitors at the show. The line-up includes talks and Q&As by famous faces like Alexis Conran, Eric Knowles, Julie Peasgood and Martin Roberts. The best bit is, all sessions are free to attend and open to everyone.

Visitors to the show can also take advantage of exclusive show-only deals, take part in competitions, and will even get the chance to chat to the reigning Miss England at the Southport stand.

Exhibition organiser Emma Cash said: “The GLTS is the best show for people who organise group trips and holidays and the 20th anniversary is encouraging exhibitors to go all out with what they are offering. There will certainly be a few surprises. See you at the NEC for another brilliant day.”
