Destination showcases

Destination Showcases

Destination Showcases provide agency buyers with an in-depth look at the destinations they're most interested in, presenting for a much more engaging perspective of why they might want to take their event there. Buyers can ask questions in the showcases, fit them around their normal meetings and ensure they're getting the maximum information to help toward planning future events.

Post-Event Tours

We've bought the post-event tours back for 2017 - the perfect opportunity for agents to see a destination in person, to then sell into their clients back in the office. All tours will depart on Thursday 15th June at 5pm, straight after the show has closed. Find out more about what's available and how you can apply.
