Travel Trade Gazette Roadshow

Travel Trade Gazette Roadshow

Tameside Travel teamed up with a wide selection of exciting suppliers at the Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) to tell agents about their products, services and latest developments. Students on the NVQ Level 2 Travel and Tourism Services Course were taken to the Manchester Roadshow which was held at The Thistle Hotel in Piccadilly by Tameside Travel Shop Manager Louise Bates.

On arrival everyone was given a welcome drink and they then spent the first 15 minutes introducing themselves to other agents and suppliers. The students then began what felt like speed dating sessions which were really useful as it was an opportunity to learn about destinations and suppliers. Suppliers then gave short presentations about their products and services.

The hotel provided a splendid buffet and the students took the opportunity to find out about everything that had been going on at TTG. The whole evening was sponsored by Abu Dhabi Tourist Board who provided a selection of Arabic food for the buffet.

Louise Bates said, “At the end of the evening the suppliers gave out prizes, but sadly none of us won anything but the students all said what a fantastic night they’d had!!”
