Harrogate Convention Centre (HCC) is preparing to host two of the UK’s leading travel shows in October as “confidence returns” among travel operators and holidaymakers.
The Wildlife & Safari Show and the Grown-Up Travel Show will take place simultaneously from 8-9 October and tickets allow entry to both shows.
Lorraine Barnes Burton, director at organiser Converge Exhibitions, said: “There is a real appetite among holidaymakers to start planning and booking special trips to make up for the last two years when travel has been severely restricted and confidence has been low.
“Excitement and confidence in the travel sector are now on the up and operators and agents at our two shows will be on hand to provide the most up-to-date travel advice and information as well as inspiration for visitors to plan their holidays of a lifetime.”
Specialist operators in leisure travel will be exhibiting at the Wildlife & Safari Show to show what’s on offer across land and sea safaris as well as wildlife, nature, adventure and trekking expeditions.
The Grown-Up Travel Show will feature a range of holiday types, including culinary, culture, cruise and luxury domestic holidays; escorted tours; rail and solo trips.
Visitors to both shows will be able to speak with tour operators and travel agents to plan and book holidays.
