About The Show
Approximately 9 million people take a coach holiday or day trip each year. With over 11,000 group organisers in the UK this is a key market for the tourism industry.
Now in its 44th year, ExcursionsTM is firmly established as the premier national group travel trade show where over 1200 group organisers, coach and tour operators meet face to face with over 300 attractions, destination partners and fellow tour operators from across the UK to discover, discuss and plan those visits.
Organised by Tourism South East it has grown steadily over the years in to a national show with a fantastic reputation for delivering quality; cementing Excursions as the must attend event in the travel trade calendar and the flagship event for Tourism South East.
Originally the regional tourist board, Tourism South East is a not-for-profit organisation providing services and expertise to support the performance and growth of tourism businesses and destinations across southern England; the largest visitor economy outside of London.
TSE is a centre of support, resource and expertise to the tourism industry across marketing and communications; research and market intelligence; training and business advice; and development and regeneration.
Excursions’ takes this collaborative working ethos to a national level through its unique destination based layout. This enables attractions and destination partners from regions across the UK to work together to draw visitors to their area. The benefit to visitors is clear; they can simply select the area they would like to visit and talk to all the exhibitors together, making itinerary planning easier and a group visit more likely.
Whether you are visiting or exhibiting we hope Excursions meets all of your needs as group travel continues to grow and develop.
