Celebrity host Vernon Kay returned for the third year running, and special guests included branding expert Alex Hunter, Green & Black’s co-founder Jo Fairley, and Dame Kelly Holmes, who left delegates feeling energised and inspired to reach their goals for 2017. Attendees were entertained by the hilarious Jack Whitehall, wowed by an intimate performance from Ronan Keating, and met directly with valued travel partners.
