The show has attracted even more group travel organisers and coach operators, eager to be kept up to date on all the latest offers, opportunities and news.

Exhibitors are also keen to sign up and make the most of the UK’s biggest event for the group travel and coach tourism sector.

Emma Cash of YPL Exhibitions and Events said: “There has been a fantastic response to the show this year. Floor space has been expanded to accommodate growing exhibitor numbers and there is a real buzz about the show, which celebrates 20 years of leading the market this October 20th.

“In particular, our celebrity seminar line up has created a lot of enquiries and of course, GTOs who pre-register online or by using the pre-registration ticket can qualify for free parking, too”.

The exhibition offers a wide range of exhibitors who specialise in dealing with group travel organisers and coach operators and can help specifically with their direct needs and enquiries.

Those visitors who arrive at hall 8 before 11.00am are also treated to a free bacon butty breakfast and there is plenty of seating and refreshment areas to facilitate the large number of visitors expected.

The show, including the seminars, is free to visit and visitor fast track pre-registration is now live at which entitles bona-fide group organisers and travel trade visitors, who have pre-registered, to free parking at the NEC saving the normal £12.00 cost. Free coach travel is also available from certain areas.
