Agents and tour operators are invited to a week-long festival of training and networking from Monday (21 September) to help them win new business.
The TTG Restart: Travel Festival takes place from 21-25 September, with a series of focussed training mornings including cruise, activity and adventure, and city breaks.
Virgin Voyages is headline partner for the event, with other confirmed partners including Celebrity Cruises, Citalia, Singapore Tourism Board, Tobago Tourism, Malta Tourism Authority, Catalan Tourist Board, Colombian Tourist Office and Vienna Tourist Board.
All partners will deliver a 20-minute training session during the week, at which agents will be able to ask their questions live.
Virgin Voyages is to host a fun, interactive quiz-style session on Wednesday afternoon, hosted by its shore excursions guru Alex Zeitz, with the chance to win great prizes.
On Friday, meanwhile, agents and tour operators are invited to one of two separate drop-in networking sessions where they will be able to visit all nine partner booths to connect further with those suppliers and download marketing collateral.
Guests can win prizes provided by our partners by completing a passport-style competition during the Friday networking session, including a £200 shopping voucher, gourmet hampers, wine and more.
The Restart Travel Festival is the latest in TTG’s unrivalled series of online events to keep travel agents and tour operators informed, inspired and connected during the most challenging period the industry has ever faced.
TTG group editor Pippa Jacks said: “Using our market-leading event platform, the Restart Travel Festival will connect agents and operators with some of the best suppliers in the business, to discover new ways of working together as the travel industry begins to rebuild itself.”
The event is free to attend. For a full agenda and to register, see the event website.
