Events

UKinbound's diverse and engaging events programme aim to assist members and non-members alike in managing successful, profitable businesses that are part of a sustainable inbound tourism industry.

Our events:

  • Offer learning and development opportunities and best industry practice for all,
  • enable our attendees to improve quality and standards throughout their own businesses,
  • build networks between tourism buyers and suppliers
  • create strong business relationships for the future
  • grow the wide range of tourism product and packages the UK has to offer.

Most importantly, our events offer a platform members to share, network and discuss issues which are pertinent to their business. This enables UKinbound, as the voice of inbound tourism, to raise these issues with Government, to ensure tourism remains one of the UK's leading export earners and employers.

World Travel Market

UKinbound co-ordinates the largest presence in the UK section of this leading global event for the travel industry; offering 60 members a cost-effective opportunity to exhibit and promote their travel product and services to the international trade.

Providing a well-balanced mix of B2B opportunities and networking, this high-profile event includes our AGM, a line-up top industry speakers and panel debate, appointment led business workshop, informal ice-breaker networking activities, culminating with a black tie gala dinner and our Awards for Excellence ceremony.

Regional Discover Workshops

Focussed on growing the knowledge of products and services offered across the UK, these events aim to develop new business relationships between buyers and local suppliers within the regions, to create bookable tourism product throughout Britain. This is a half-day event offering pre-arranged B2B meetings, followed by a familiarisation trip within the region.

Market Seminars

In partnership with VisitBritain, we bring the latest insights on a specific market from top industry experts to keep you up to date with the latest conditions, updates and trends to help you grow your business and attract more overseas visitors from your chosen markets.

Familiarisation Visits
