BTTS sees 10% increase in visitors

British Tourism & Travel Show 2018 (BTTS), the leading event for the group travel industry, has reported a 10% increase in attendees.

Angela Rippon headlined the show’s Keynote Theatre programme

The show welcomed 2,866 visitors to the NEC, Birmingham, including leading coach operators and tour companies.

The show took place on 21-22 March and has been widely acclaimed as one of the best yet, with 270 exhibitors, new show features, and a top-quality line-up of industry speakers for its Keynote seminar programme, headlined by Angela Rippon.

David Maguire, Event Director, says: “The buzz on site was electric this year. Visitor numbers reached a record high, and we can’t wait to get to work on the next edition taking place on 20-21 March 2019.”

The new Destination Europe area proved to be a successful addition to BTTS 2018, with many praising the range of exhibitors providing inspiration and new ideas for international tours.

Highlights also included the new Food & Drink Trail, which allowed visitors to sample treats influenced by history and heritage from across the British Isles.

Award-winning broadcaster Angela Rippon shared travel stories from her 50-year career with the BBC.
