UKinbound has been invited to one of the biggest events in the UK and Ireland travel industry’s calendar as part of a partnership with Etoa.
Members of the trade organisation will attend the Britain and Ireland Marketplace (BIM) in London on 28 January, just days before the newest Brexit deadline on 31 January.
The Irish backstop has been a contentious issue during the ongoing Brexit negotiations by both Boris Johnson and Theresa May.
There are more than 6,500 meetings between transport providers, travel organisers, historical landmarks, tourist attractions, hotels and tourist boards at the annual full-day event.
Both Ukinbound and Etoa will give a joint welcome at the event.
In return for the invitation, Etoa will attend UKinbound’s Annual Convention in Bristol on 5 and 6 February.
“With the backdrop of Brexit uncertainty and currency fluctuations, it is more important than ever that we extend the networking opportunities afforded by BIM to as many businesses as possible,” said Tom Jenkins, Etoa’s chief executive.
Joss Croft, chief executive of UKinbound, said: “Whilst long-haul markets are performing well, bookings from European markets have softened during 2019 and uncertainty from Brexit continues to impact industry confidence, so we are delighted that we can partner with Etoa for BIM to offer members a great opportunity to expand their network and cut new deals.”
