It’s a great opportunity for them to meet our Travel Counsellors and showcase their products. To find out the full line-up for the conference, Travel Counsellors will need to wait for the conference – we may have a few surprises up our sleeves!”


Sponsors include Dubai Tourism, RCCL, Blue Insurance, Do Something Different, Emirates, South African Tourism, Tourism Thailand, and One & Only.

The annual conference is a great opportunity for the Travel Counsellors to get together, meet new friends and celebrate their achievements.


Travel Counsellor Ian Walsh said: “Attending our annual conference is a no-brainer for me. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet head office staff, get new ideas for my business and to find about any exciting new developments in the company. This is where I meet my fellow TCs who share the same passion for travel as I do. It is also where I get the chance to talk to suppliers, build on the fantastic relationships we already have with them and stay up to date with the latest travel products and services on offer. This allows me to provide my clients with an up-to-date, unrivalled travel service that is completely focused on them and their needs.”
