Feedback from visitors

My favourite travel trade show, where I get to network with colleagues old and new. There’s always a great mix of attractions and suppliers. Each year I come back to the office enthused and with new ideas for different tours for the following season.

If you’re looking for inspiration then this is a good staring place for any tour operator. The show has a plethora of hotels and attractions on parade with helpful representatives.
