The Travel Network Group has announced Jerusalem as the location for its next conference.
It will take place from 22-25 November 2020 across two of the city’s five-star hotels, The David Citadel and The Mamilla, located in the heart of the city and only a short walk away from the Old City Walls and Jaffa Gate.
Gary Lewis, chief executive, The Travel Network Group, said: “It’s a city unlike any other and you have to see it to believe it.”
He said he was “bowled over” by what Jerusalem has to offer as a conference destination and that is becoming increasingly accessible from the UK, with more of the main carriers now offering daily flights.
Lewis added: “The feedback from members who joined us in Budapest earlier this year was incredibly positive and we always knew that it would be a challenge to find a destination that could top what Budapest offered – but in Jerusalem we feel that we have a city that meets all our criteria and more, and one that many members will be keen to experience.”
More information will be revealed early in the new year, with delegates given the option of either three- or four-night packages.
Lewis continued: “We are grateful to the Israel Ministry of Tourism and Jerusalem Tourist Board for helping us make Jerusalem work for our next group conference.
“The teams there are extremely excited to host our members and see it as a wonderful opportunity to showcase this destination to such an important audience.”
Sharon Ehrlich Bershadsky, director, Israel government tourist office, said: “Guests will be able to experience the historical splendour, alongside the vibrant culture and fantastic cuisine.
“We look forward to showcasing our unique and beautiful city to the wonderful group of travel professionals that belong to The Travel Network Group.”
