Keeping the group travel industry inspired and connected for over 47 years
With over 47 years of experience in group travel and a successful virtual event during a global pandemic under our belts, Excursions is firmly established in the group travel calendar.
It is an unrivalled opportunity for exhibitors to showcase products to qualified group travel organisers, coach and tour operators and with a higher level of tailoring in the group travel market than any other sector. In January 2022, it will be the show's 48th year.
We have all adapted to a virtual world over the last 18 months and made the best of it, however doing business face to face and meeting up with colleagues and client, old and new, has been hugely missed. We can't wait to get back to building relationships.
What's new for our 2022 event?
We loved our time at Alexandra Palace, however it's time for a change and we are excited to welcome our exhibitors and visitors to Twickenham Stadium for our January 2022 event!
It's early days, but we're busy planning a great event...Watch this space or subscribe to our updates and you will hear more soon!
A New Venue
A Coach Transfer Programme with over 50 visitor pick up and drop off locations.
The opportunity to visit the World Rugby Museum or take part in a Twickenham Stadium Tour
Book on to an overnight familiarisation exploring the borough of Richmond-upon-Thames to coincide with the exhibition.
Private Coach Party Welcome Opportunities if Coach Operators want to bring their own key bookers to the event.
A virtual familiarisation programme will compliment the face to face event in the week following the show to provide more details on some selected destinations
Showcasing day trips, short breaks and group holidays in the UK and overseas, Excursions is the free must-attend event for group travel organisers to discover the latest group tours and prices, all under one roof and all in one day!
To encourage the very best visitor attendance we run a number of promotions throughout the day including a transfer coach pick up programme inviting visitors to travel in comfort to the event, complementary tea throughout the show, show opening entertainment and an opportunity take advantage of stadium tours and access to the museum
We are going Hybrid!
As with many events in 2022, we are going hybrid! There were some positives that came out of the pandemic, and although there is no substitute to meeting face to face, there is a value to online meetings, with the ability to provide more detail in the comfort of your own home.
In the week following the event, we will delve deeper with 10 of our destination exhibitors and continue the success of the virtual familiarisation programme introduced in 2021

Itinerary planning at it's best!
64% of our visitors tell us they start by researching a location, So at Excursions we want to make it easy for you!
As an exhibition, Excursions is unique, with a floorplan set out by destination. You can talk to exhibitors confidently knowing geographically they are located in the area you wish to visit, and those around them may well help complete the rest of your itinerary! We encourage our exhibitors to work collaboratively with each other to build group itineraries and support you with your planning.
