New-look Excursions offers ‘early bird’ discounts

Stands at Excursions 2017 are available at ‘early bird’ discounted prices until June 30.

The national group travel trade show will feature a new look, with a fresh shell scheme, carpet layout and themed areas.

It will be held on January 28, 2017, at Alexandra Palace, London, with about 300 exhibitors from the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe and more than 1,200 group buyers and inbound/outbound itinerary planners.

Attractions, destinations, accommodation providers and tour operators will be showcasing their latest group offer ideas for day trips, short breaks and longer holidays in the UK.

New themed sections will be devoted to Christmas Markets and Food and Drink, and the geographical areas will be retained.

Joanne Channon, travel trade marketing manager at show organiser Tourism South East, said: “Following the success of our 2016 show, the Excursions team will be working hard behind the scenes once again to deliver a vibrant exhibition next year.

“We are also looking forward to developing an even stronger relationship with our show partners and welcoming everyone back in January.”

Online visitor registration will open from mid-September.
