Visitors attending the Excursions show in 2017.

Group Leisure & Travel magazine has confirmed it will once again be the official media partner for the annual Excursions exhibition, organised by Tourism South East.

The show, which offers GTOs the chance to meet a range of exhibitors and pick up ideas for group trips, will take place on Saturday 26th January, 2019, at Alexandra Palace in north London.

Organisers of the exhibition, now in its 43rd year, have launched Early Bird bookings with rates held at last year’s prices for exhibitors.

Nigel Smith, TSE chief executive, said: “Tourism South East is extremely pleased to again be working together with Group Leisure & Travel magazine as the media partner for Excursions 2019.

“It extends an excellent working relationship that we have developed over the past few years based on mutual respect and expertise in the group leisure business. This will undoubtedly be of benefit not just to our two organisations but to all the suppliers and buyers that will be attending Excursions 2019.”

Group Leisure & Travel will keep readers informed on Excursions’ developments throughout the year and produce the official preview to the one-day show. A full list of exhibitors will be released later this year.

Rob Yandell, publisher of Group Leisure & Travel, said: “We have been the media partner for Excursions over the past three years and are pleased to support the 2019 show.

“It was clear that Tourism South East saw GLT as their preferred media once again and we are looking forward to working with the TSE team yet again.”

Registration for the 2019 show, which will take place between 10.30am and 4pm on 26th January, will open in due course.
