          Connecting the Gro up Travel
             and Tourism Industry

            For 30 years, our portfolio of products has helped
                     shape the group travel sector.
Launching the first national group travel magazine and instigating the first nationally recognised
association for group travel (GTOA, now AGTO) were our first steps into giving a voice to our
industry. Over the years, our reputation for innovation has led us to launch other successful
initiatives such as The Group Travel Awards and more recently the GO Travel Show.
We hope our information pack gives you new ideas and inspiration for targeting the group travel
sector as well as the wider travel trade.

The prestigious awards
Launched in 1997, The Group Travel Awards
are decided by the readers of GTO magazine
and have earned an enviable reputation as the
most distinguished and respected event serving
the group travel market; they reflect a highly
valued endorsement from customers in this most
important market sector.

The categories vary from Best West End
Production, to Best Historic House or Garden
to Best Coach Operator and Ocean Cruise Line
Operator, and reward the companies, attractions and suppliers from throughout the group travel industry who have
provided excellent service groups over the last twelve months.

The 2019 Group Travel Awards will take place on Friday 7th June at The Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel. The
winners in each category are carefully kept under wraps until the announcement is made by our host during the
glittering awards ceremony.

                                                                                                   NETWORK

For group travel
professionals
The Group Travel Business Forum has been
in existence for over 10 years as an informal
grouping of professionals who specialise in
providing products and services to the group
travel and tourism market.

It was established in recognition of the fact that
the voice of group travel as a distinct sector of
the industry is often missing in discussions
with official bodies and in meetings of other
professionals in the field, and the exchange
of expertise and knowledge between group
specialists can be very beneficial to both
individuals and the sector as a whole.

                                                                                     Our mission
