Simon Calder at GLTS

The Group Leisure & Travel Show (GLTS) has announced that Britain’s No.1 travel expert Simon Calder is returning to this year’s exhibition as a keynote speaker in the free to attend seminar theatre.

Senior travel editor of The Independent, and acclaimed TV and radio broadcaster, Simon is the second celebrity speaker revealed for GLTS 2018, which will be staged at the NEC, Birmingham this October. This news follows the announcement that TV gardening expert Carol Klein will also join this year’s line up as the first seminar speaker of the day.

Simon’s seminar session at the GLTS last year was extremely popular, with Simon offering GLTS visitors valuable advice including details about the Package Travel Directive. Emma Cash, GLTS show organiser, said that the seminar line-up, which includes another celebrity speaker announcement due to be made next month, will provide a very exciting range of well-known experts speaking at the UK’s biggest and most important event for the group travel sector. “It’s going to be a brilliant day,” says Emma.

Exhibition sales manager Sharon Yandell was equally positive, confirming stand sales for the 2018 show have exceeded expectations and that all indications are it will be another sell-out event. Companies, venues and organisations interested in exhibiting or sponsoring at the 2018 event, which takes place in Hall 19 of the NEC, should contact Sharon on 01908 613323.

More information about the GLTS can be found at the show website www.grouptravelshow.com. Online visitor registration will begin this month and includes benefits such as free entry, free bacon butty breakfast for early arrival, and free parking at the NEC.
