Flog It! presenter Paul Martin

Paul has been confirmed as one of the celebrity speakers for the 2024 GLT Show.

Paul spoke at the exhibition in 2021 and was extremely popular, outlining some brilliant venues that GTOs can consider for group visits.

“I simply ran out of time” says Paul, “and I can’t wait to return with more thoughts and ideas this coming October. I really enjoyed the show and the people, and plan to attend throughout the day in addition to my speaking slot. There is a lot more we can highlight and I am really looking forward to returning on October 3rd.”

Show director Graham Yandell MBE added: “Paul was hugely popular with our visitors and exhibitors when he joined us in 2021. Nothing was too much trouble and I know he really enjoyed his day with us and went down really well with our seminar audience.

Paul shared hidden heritage sites with the audience at the 2021 Group Leisure & Travel Show. 

“It is unusual to have a speaker back, although travel guru Simon Calder has been a regular at the show over recent years. However, in this case, I know visitors will both enjoy Paul’s next presentation and meeting with him on the day – he is genuinely a really nice person who has time for everyone.

“The free celebrity seminar programme adds significantly to a truly special and enjoyable day for GTOs and it is also extremely rewarding to get such positive feedback from visitors and hear about the successes experienced by our exhibitors.”

More about Paul Martin

Paul Martin, who has presented Flog It! since 2002, was first discovered when he was interviewed about his passion for oak furniture by a team from BBC Bristol. The team was so impressed with his natural confidence in front of the camera that they signed him up immediately to present the BBC daytime antiques show. 

He has travelled all around the UK filming the show and in addition has presented two series of Britain’s Hidden Heritage (BBC1), The Manor Reborn (BBC1) and Paul Martin’s Handmade Revolution for BBC2. 

Paul lives in Wiltshire with his wife and two children who feature regularly, together with their smallholding on the BBC’s Countryfile Diaries. He also has an art and antiques gallery, The Table Gallery, in Corsham. 

Additional speakers for this year’s show will be announced in due course.

The Group Leisure & Travel Show remains Britain’s most popular group travel event. It is the only show to feature celebrity speakers in a free to attend purpose built seminar theatre and visitors and exhibitors also get a free bacon butty breakfast and hot drink on arrival plus a free light lunch too.

There will also be free coach transport from selected areas to Milton Keynes, details of which will be announced soon.
