In 2010, Cruise Select and Select Travel Holidays held their first Cruise & Travel show in Bedford and this has become an annual event ever since.
2015 is their 6th show and is set to be the biggest and best to date with more cruise lines, travel operators and presentations than ever before.
Since 2010, the Cruise & Travel show has tripled in size and has outgrown two venues, the Swan Hotel in Bedford and the Sharnbrook Hotel. However, for the past two shows they have held the cruise & travel show at the Executive Centre at Wyboston Lakes, making 2015 their third.
12 presentations are to be held throughout the day, with a presentation by Julie Peasgood, British Actress. Julie will be on hand to answer questions about cruising. Julie is an avid cruiser as it is her favourite way to travel.
Cruise Select independently manage their annual Cruise and Travel Show. Therefore, ensuring that the venue choice is suitable and can host all of the activities and presentations planned is key when confirming the venue.
The Executive Centre at Wyboston Lakes offers everything under one roof, keeping the event compact and easy to monitor.
The event organisers utilised social media to promote the event, in particular their Facebook and Twitter sites. Along with regular updates on their website.
Each year, the conference brings like minded aquistion leaders and travel enthusiasts to experience how specialised the Cruise Select brand is and what they
have to offer. Along with attracting new clients.
A big part of their brief was to make the event a unique and memorable experience and better than any before. Having moved to exhibiting at Wyboston Lakes, Cruise Select have been able to push the boundaries with the size of the equipement they display. This ensured the day was full of fun and the cruise and travel partners gave their customers an invaluable insight into their new products.
This resulted in attracting people from as far away as Kent, Surrey – around 80 mile radius.
