Celebrate Group Travel Day

Landor Travel Publications, publishers of Group Travel Organiser magazine, are excited to announce Celebrate Group Travel Day on Thursday 3rd September 2020. We’ve signed up a major television production company to help create and present the content of a new pop-up TV experience focusing specifically on group travel, the programme will be available for free on YouTube TV. It will be of broadcast TV quality and run over 5 hours from a studio in London with celebrity hosts including Patrick Kielty.

There will feature a new afternoon group travel opportunities showcase, followed by an early evening presentation and celebration of the 2020 UK Group Travel Awards. We’ve released a full schedule of the day, so people can tune in to attend individual elements or the whole event. Make sure to check back regularly on our social channels to see any updates to the schedule.

Special content will bring the nation’s group travel organisers and specialist suppliers, attractions and destinations together to celebrate the best in the sector, and underline the importance of group travel as it starts to resume after the dramatic suspension brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic and activity lockdown. There will be interactive elements and prize competitions, and several entertainment segments.

Both the GO Travel Show and the Group Travel Awards were originally scheduled to take place earlier in the year and were postponed to early September when the government introduced its ban on social activity. It’s now sadly become apparent that the face-to-face activity that both have traditionally involved, will in large part be impossible. So instead we’ve combined the two events on the same day, and like everything else, we’ve moved online. Which means you can watch for free from the comfort of your own home on your phone, tablet, computer or Smart TV, all via the YouTube app.

Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel here so you’ll be instantly notified when the event starts!

During the day there will be presentations, quizzes, discussions and features on new visitor attractions and experiences. The whole afternoon will be hosted by a familiar broadcasting celebrity, well known for being ‘anchor’ on TV & radio events of a similar kind. In the early evening, the studio will be devoted to the Group Travel Awards, set up to capture the glitz and excitement of the eagerly anticipated announcement of the winners in the 20+ categories voted for by the readers of GTO magazine.

In case you miss anything, the whole event will be recorded and available for subsequent viewing, both as a complete experience, and as highlights.

For more information on how you can get involved with the Group Travel Showcase and the Group Travel Awards, and more details on the days’ schedule, please visit the Celebrate Group Travel Day page.
