The Group Leisure & Travel Show is back at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes on Thursday 6th October, and teachers and EVCs are welcome to register and visit for free to meet and talk to top attractions and providers.

Group Leisure & Travel Show 2021

Exhibitors at the Group Leisure & Travel Show are on hand to talk to people about all types of group travel.

As always, the event is totally geared towards group travel and people looking for ideas, offers and specialist advice. It’s an occasion when the leading attractions, hotels, operators, tourist boards, and all areas of the travel trade come together to help visitors face-to-face with their specific needs.

Teachers and educational visit coordinators can take advantage of the ideas and exhibitors available, and visit for free, although pupils and students are unable to attend.

GLT Show Organiser, Sharon Yandell said: “The overwhelming feedback last year was about how friendly and welcoming the event was. The visitor and exhibitor experience are of paramount importance to us and we work hard to ensure the day is not only valuable but also enjoyable.”

The Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes can be found adjacent to Stadium MK and is easy to find. You can get details of how to get there, here. Visitors and exhibitors can expect easy, free parking right outside to the Arena, a complimentary bacon butty breakfast (it wouldn’t be the GLT Show without it), and a free light lunch for all. 

Opening at 10am, you can meet experts who really understand groups and come away with ideas and special offers. Plus, there will be talks in the Seminar Theatre which everyone can attend.

Who can you listen to in the Seminar Theatre this year?

  • The country’s leading travel expert, Simon Calder
  • Former BBC Royal Correspondent, Jennie Bond
  • Award-winning journalist and cruise expert, Jane Archer
