Coach and tour operators and group travel organisers from around the UK are being invited to the annual Southern Wales Group Buyer Showcase taking place from Sunday 10 to Tuesday 12 March 2019.

Organisers Southern Wales Tourism say the show is an ideal way to find inspiration for new tours and excursions. Now in its fifth year, buyers will join Southern Wales Tourism and Steve Reed Tourism for a 3-day familiarisation visit discovering the very best of South East Wales.

The event features the Best Western Heronston Hotel & Spa in Bridgend where the attendees will stay on the Sunday and Monday nights, and the group will be led by Blue Badge Guide Steve Griffin.

Over the course of the three days operators will visit some of the best attractions including Caerphilly Castle, Llanerch Vineyard, the Royal Mint Visitor Experience, Bedwellty House and Cardiff Castle.

Organisations already signed up for the event include Skinners of Oxted, Albatross Group from Kent, Richmond’s Coaches from Royston, and Tailored Travel from London.

A B2B workshop will also take place on Monday 11 March at the National Museum Cardiff where buyers will meet some of the key tourism suppliers from South Wales in a series of one-to-one pre-scheduled appointments.

Operators unable to attend the full fam trip can reserve day delegate places for the workshop and can meet representatives from the hotels and attractions. Special offers will be available on the day for bookings taken and buyers can also enjoy free refreshments throughout the day.

Steve Reed said, “There will be a great selection of group travel organisers, tour operators, wholesalers and inbound operators attending this super event. It’s an ideal way to develop exciting new tours, holidays and trips in what is a superb part of the UK.”
