The annual Group Leisure & Travel Trade Show (GLTT) has announced that in 2014 it will locate two exhibitions in both Birmingham and London, and that this will be the new structure for the show thereafter.

The show, which targets group travel organisers and coach operators, recently had its 17th two-day annual presentation at the NEC on September 18 and 19 and has been located at the NEC since 2006, after many years previously at the Wembley Exhibition Centre. Next year the show will split to become a one-day event at the Business Design Centre, London on Saturday, May 17 and a one-day event at Birmingham’s NEC on Thursday, September 25.

Organiser Emma Cash told CBW: “We are very positive about prospects for 2014 and confident that we will continue to offer the best top quality events available in the groups and coach tourism market. What we are doing is reacting to what our visitors and exhibitors want and it appears that exhibitors are certainly voting with their feet with both shows already booking well and both already over 40% sold for 2014.” Details of the GLTT can be found at: www.leisureshow. com.
