VisitWiltshire News Updates
Travel Trade Update

VisitWiltshire ran a travel trade familiarisation visit to Wiltshire earlier this month. We welcomed representatives from wholesalers Trafalgar Tours, Norman Allen Group Travel, Interopa, Travel Bureau Destination and PAC Group Company plus four group travel organisations and two travel/trade press. We will continue to work closely with all these organisations to ensure they bring business into the county.
The one-to-one speed networking meetings proved very popular with 22 supplier partners attending the event at Marlborough College. Following very positive feedback from partners, VisitWiltshire are keen to repeat this event in spring 2017 so please do get in touch with Flo if you can offer a venue or wish to register an interest to attend (dates TBC).
