Exhibitors meeting organisers at the 2017 Group Leisure %26 Travel Show

Visitor registration, which includes benefits such as free parking* at the NEC, is now open for the 2018 Group Leisure & Travel Show. 

Backed by Group Leisure & Travel magazine, Britain’s biggest and most important exhibition for group travel organisers and coach operators will take place on Thursday, 11th October at the NEC in Birmingham, and this year will celebrate 21 years as the sector’s market leading annual event.

It’s free to attend and a wide range of exhibitors, offering an unbeaten selection of ideas and offers for groups, will be on hand to help GTOs and the travel trade with ideas, plans and special deals. 

There will also be a celebrity line-up of expert seminar speakers provided free in the show theatre, for visitors to enjoy. 

Show organisers YPL Exhibitions & Events have already announced that travel guru and TV pundit Simon Calder will return to this year’s show and will offer his expertise and advice in his usual relaxed and entertaining way. Simon joins gardening presenter Carol Klein who also looks forward to sharing her passion and advice about garden visits with GTOs. A further high-profile celebrity speaker attending GLTS will be announced next month.

Free coach travel will also be offered to the event at the NEC from selected destinations and details of routes and times will be announced on the show website in due course.
