National Memorial Arboretum hosts group showcase

The new Aspects conference facility at Staffordshire’s National Memorial Arboretum was the venue for the latest group buyer forum arranged by Steve Reed Tourism.

There were more than 40 representatives from attractions, destinations and hotels across the UK, who met group travel organisers and coach and tour operators to discuss group travel opportunities.

Classic Lodges Hotels hosted some of the buyers at its flagship Charingworth Manor Hotel in the Cotswolds.

Delegates also visited Compton Verney Park and Art Gallery and took afternoon tea and a factory tour at the World of Wedgwood.

Reed said: “We were so pleased to work with the National Memorial Arboretum. Lots of enquiries, positive leads and real bookings were achieved on the day.

“The new Aspects facility at the NMA helped make the event a big success.”

The next group buyer forum will be a Painshill Park in Surrey on April 29.
