Buyer Focus Group

Our buyer business members will start conference at 11:00am by joining together in a closed session to share best practice in specific and important areas of a travel programme. This is for Buyer Members ONLY to network, discuss their issues and learn from each other in a confidential environment. In addition you will meet our sponsors during a networking lunch which will give you the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet potential suppliers with new products and services.

The Exhibition

A networking space with a difference; connect with fellow delegates, catch up on emails and meet with our sponsors in their dedicated pods. All coffee breaks, lunch breaks and afternoon tea will be served here.
