A winning formula!
The third annual GO Travel Show delivered loads of inspiration for future days out for some 550 group travel organisers, tour operators and travel trade professionals at a sunny Kempton Park Racecourse on Tuesday 17th April.
Visitors to the event were delighted with the innovative layout of the exhibition and networked with over 120 of the UK’s top travel providers and tourist attractions.
Darryl Murdoch, Show Director and Commercial Manager:
‘I’m really delighted with the success of the 2018 GO Travel Show. This year’s event had the biggest and best line up of exhibitors with 70 stands, and over 120 top class exhibitors on hand to talk to the 550 top quality organisers who attended. Building on the success of the previous two events, the Landor Travel Publications team delivered a first class experience with visitors, and the feedback we’ve received at the end of the show was brilliant!
The goal was to make the event an ‘experience rather than an exhibition’ and with historical characters such as Henry VIII and Queen Victoria, plus the ‘flash mob’ performances from the wonderful showtime dance team at Away Resorts by Mill Rythe as well as many other creative contributors – we really did deliver. I would like to thank all sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and visitors for making the event a truly fantastic experience for all involved.’

Mingling with celebrities...
Amongst characters you could meet was King Henry VIII from Black Knight Historical, who enjoyed a slice of cake with Sussex Prairie Garden and took a VR trip into the future.
St George was on hand a few days early for his English Celebration day, seen here chatting with an eminent Victorian. Meanwhile, Queen Victoria was helping out on the Royal Albert Hall stand.

An experience, rather than an exhibition
Visitors were surprised by Flash Mob performances by the fabulous cast from Away Resorts at Mill Rythe.
Crowds queued to come in to the show. This restored vintage London Bus was at the event to support RedRoutemaster company’s promotion of its vehicle hire and tour services.
Thumbs up from our Exhibitors!
“This year is the best year we have ever had in terms of footfall to our stand. Please can you confirm a stand for us for 2019.”

“I liked the layout – very informal and welcoming. Someone went to a lot of trouble setting this up and it was well worth the effort. I liked the quality of the visitors – they also seemed to stay longer than in past years. The entertainment during the event in the main hall was just right.”
Antony Brunt, Yarn Market Hotel/Exmoor
“Just wanted to say thank you for an excellent organisation. Well done to you and your team. The venue was perfect and I liked the layout, ease of access for logistics. The one day, midweek also made it great for us.”
