Group Travel Business Forum – Winter Seminar 2018

R.S. Hispaniola, at Victoria Embankment, London

Succeeding as a groups supplier

The Group Travel Business Forum is pleased to announce that this year’s Winter Seminar will take place inside the R.S. Hispaniola, at Victoria Embankment, London on Tuesday, 13th February 2018, between 2pm – 5pm. Our venue is hosted by London’s leading river cruise operator City Cruises.

GTBF has always provided a platform for the Group Tourism Sector to learn from the most respected experts in their field. This winter we’re hosting an afternoon spotlight on succeeding as a groups supplier by finding the right business model and market focus. City Cruises founder and MD Gary Beckwith will be on hand to give his thoughts on these topics, and share specialist advice and key takeaway information that you can use to develop your own business and personal skills.

There is a large and important market for Group Tourism activities, which is often overlooked but delivers excellent business for those involved. This event gives you the opportunity to hear from the experts who have risen to the challenges and opportunities from a business perspective, and have offered visitor experiences that are well tailored for the groups market.

Details about specific conference speakers are ongoing, so interested parties can stay tuned for announcements by following us on Twitter or by periodically checking this website.

This seminar is FREE to all GTBF members, and is open to all other industry professionals for a fee of £65+VAT, and students at just £25+VAT. Anyone interested in becoming a GTBF member can find out more from our membership section.
