GO Travel Show 2020: Revised Arrangements

The impact of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak and necessary measures taken to control and mitigate the impact of it on public health, have led us to decide to postpone this year’s GO Travel Show to Thursday 10th September.

At Landor Travel Publications and GTO Magazine we are committed to delivering the best events for our sponsors, exhibitors and visitors - and following the recent escalation with the coronavirus/COVID-19 situations and the recommended precautions that have been advised, we believe it’s appropriate to re-schedule the event as we take the health and safety of all involved extremely seriously.

In the best interests of everyone the show will not take place on Wednesday 22nd April 2020. We are however pleased to advise that a new date has been confirmed with Kempton Park Racecourse for it to take place on Thursday 10th September 2020.

As you will see from reports on our companion websites and reviews in Group Travel Organiser magazine we have had two very successful regional group travel shows already this year in Bristol and Manchester, along with securing an excellent exhibitor and entertainment line-up for the GO Travel Show.

We do hope that you will all understand the reasons for postponement of the GO Travel Show from its original date, and will put the new date in your diary. We look forward to welcoming you in September when we are confident that the country’s health situation will be in a much more stable place, and we can all be planning for successfully resuming our group travel activities.

If you have any queries as a visitor regarding this announcement do please contact Julie Hart on

Regarding exhibitor arrangements please contact Event Director Darryl Murdoch on 020 7091 7891 or email him at

We will automatically carry over all visitor registrations and exhibition bookings for the show to the new date, so you don’t need to take any further action, though we will of course be contacting our exhibitors personally with regard to the new arrangements. Registered visitors will also be contacted to confirm their attendance.

We look forward to welcoming you in September, and thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.

Yours sincerely,

Darryl Murdoch
