The global spread of Covid-19 brought trade shows and exhibitions to a halt in 2020. And while some remain cancelled, or have been postponed, many are now taking place in the virtual world we have become so familiar with. Virtual events have become the ‘norm’ and still offer many benefits for both the exhibitors and the attendees.
Here’s where we’ll be ‘virtually’ in 2021.
ExploreGB Virtual 2021 is VisitBritain’s flagship annual travel trade event. International buyers are invited to connect online with travel trade suppliers across the UK. ExploreGB will take place from Monday 1st March to Friday 5th March.
The Lake District Travel Trade Showcase will take place virtually on Tuesday 16th February. (With ad hoc appointments throughout the whole week 15th – 19th) The showcase offers tour operators the opportunity to find out about group tours. Sailing on one of our heritage vessels, amongst the dramatic backdrop of the Lakeland fells, offers visitors an experience they’ll never forget. And with a wide range of group tours on offer, there are plenty of options from half days, full days, walking tours and joint tickets with other local attractions. Find out more here.
