This website was launched at the British Travel Trade Fair on 13th March 2007. It is brought to you by the people who publish Group Travel Organiser magazine, the UK’s first and leading publication exclusively addressing the needs of group travel organisers. GTO was first published in 1988 and over the past 19 years has brought a wealth of news, information and ideas for group trips to organisers all over Great Britain. The magazine is still published ten times a year and mailed to 10,000 individuals, along with numerous supplements on particular countries, regions and subjects of interest to groups.
With the launch of this website, the same information is now available to a world wide audience. So if you are a ‘group tour planner’ in the United States, or an ‘organisateur’ for a ‘comite social’ in France, you are just as welcome to join our online community of group travel organisers.
As you explore the pages of this website you’ll find features and news items that have also been published, or will be published in Group Travel Organiser magazine. Increasingly though, you’ll find more and more material exclusive to this website that is not in the magazine. You can also find downloadable versions of our most recent supplements and if you’d like to receive a copy of the magazine (free for group organisers in the UK!) then use the forms on the Subscribe page.
We hope you will find the website useful. As the site is brand new, you can expect lots of change over the coming weeks and months. However, we want you to feel part of our community, so we’d love to hear your views on the site and how we can improve if. Please contact us by clicking here.
