The Monastery, Manchester. The venue for the inaugural Northern Travel & Tourism Show.

The GTO team is delighted to be bringing you three Group Travel and Tourism shows during 2020, building our network of free-to-enter events that enable group travel planners and organisers throughout the country to meet face-to-face with attractions, destinations, accommodation providers, venues, tour operators and many other tourism suppliers.

Each show – one national and two regional – will be organised in partnership with the local host destination, and a variety of fam visits will allow GTOs the opportunity to learn more about the immediate local area at first hand through visits to selected attractions.

Northern Travel & Tourism Show

The Northern Travel & Tourism Show will take place on Tuesday 25th February at The Monastery, pictured above, a heritage venue in central Manchester.

This event will provide a focus on tourism suppliers, big and small, in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire, Cumbria, Yorkshire and the North East.

Supported by Marketing Manchester and Greatdays Travel Group, who are a leading tour operator based in the city, we are delighted to be returning to the area to showcase the opportunities for group travel in this part of the country.

Our beautiful host venue is The Monastery. Originally a church and Franciscian Friary designed by Victorian architect, E.W. Pugin (1834-1875), it closed for worship in 1989 and reopened in 2007 after extensive restoration brought many neogothic architectural details of the Pugin masterpiece back to life. It’s now an events and wedding venue, but talks and tours of the building can also be booked.

If you would like more information on attending our show or to book a stand contact Anoek Petit.
