Why Exhibit?

Destinations: The Holiday & Travel Shows are the UK’s largest consumer holiday and travel events and held in association with The Times, The Sunday Times and Sunday Times Travel Magazine. The Manchester 2019 show will be the 8th event held in EventCity, a fantastic venue that is part of the Trafford Centre, and looks set to attract our largest visitor number ever of well over 30,000 consumers.

This follows an incredibly successful 2018 show which established Destinations Manchester as the largest holiday and travel show (consumer or trade) outside of London and certainly anywhere in the North of England, seeing over 30,000 active, affluent and assured travellers flood through the doors over four days.

With an individual spend of over £6,130 per person per year on holidays; their combined spend totals circa £185 million over the next 12 months. That’s £15.4 million every month or £3.5 million each and every week!

With City, Beach / Relaxation, Culture, Cruise and Nature as their top five types of holiday, this active consumer base will take close to 200,000 trips this year.

57% of visitors intend to book a holiday in the next six months as a direct result of attending the show, whilst 89% of visitors are ‘likely to’ or ‘definitely will' attend again in 2018. With an amazing 975 of them exclusive to Destinations Manchester and not attending any other travel show, this is a must attend event for company wishing to engage with active and wealthy travellers in the North.

Join over 250 brands at EventCity in Manchester for Destinations: The Holiday & Travel Show from 17  – 20 January 2019.
