Group Travel Forum North – Date and Venue Announced.


UK Group travel specialists Steve Reed Tourism Ltd of Hampshire have just announced details of their annual Group Travel Forum-North event for 2019. The Lowry, Salford Quays is Venue for the Travel Trade on                  Monday 14 Oct. 

Taking place from 10.30 to 14.00, the Group Travel Forum will feature high quality exhibitors from around the country including many hotels, attractions, destinations and tourism services.


Coach and tour operators, active group travel organisers along with tour wholesalers and some inbound buyers will attend the event.


The Group Travel Forum-North is arranged to generate new and additional group bookings and seeks to put the buyers of tours together with the sellers of group tour offerings in a friendly, yet business-like setting.


And City Centre Cruises [Manchester] will be providing a highly enjoyable Fam Cruise straight after the event for tour planners attending the Group Travel Forum. The Farington Lodge Hotel in Leyland will be hosting some of the tour operators attending the event.


Each year Steve Reed Tourism arranges two such events – and in 2019 the sister event of the Lowry Forum is  the Group Travel Forum-South which takes place at Painshill Park in Surrey on Monday 29th
, again from 10.30 – 14.00. French Brothers River Cruises of Windsor will be providing a river cruise for tour planners and the nearby Grovefield House Hotel will be hosting some of the buyers for the event.


Each event offers tour planners the incentive of meeting the many tourism businesses in a top setting but also provides free tours and river cruises for the GTOS and operators.


Steve Reed is the MD of Steve Reed Tourism Ltd:

‘We’re about to enter the 20th continuous year of SRT and we think that our current events are better than ever with high quality buyers attracted to them. We are able to demonstrate our nationwide reach in terms of the exhibitors attending too. The last event we did in October at the National Memorial Arboretum showcased tourism business, hotels and attractions from places as far afield as Devon, County Durham, Merseyside, Yorkshire and London,’ Says Steve.


Steve Reed Tourism are currently taking bookings from tour planners for both events [north and south] and are allocating exhibition places to the tourism businesses keen to meet the buyers and create new group bookings.
