Consort Board members Doreen McKenzie of Knock Travel and Sandra Corkin of Oasis Travel told Irish Travel Trade News: “Usually about 75 people attend, made up of members, their partners and suppliers. We have one day focused on business, with an inspirational speaker followed by a speed dating session that gives each member an opportunity to speak one-to-one with each supplier.

“Consort Travel Group is the largest grouping of independent travel agencies based all over Northern Ireland with a total of 29 shops. Our new affiliation on 1st February with Advantage Travel Group is about doing business with like-minded people, yet we retain our own independence and, indeed, local deals with suppliers who we have built up a long-term relationship with over many years.”
