Inntravel Discovery Day

Nigel and Joe in front of our stand at the Inntravel travel fair

Joe and I got back from the UK yesterday where we had been to exhibit at the Inntravel Discovery day, along with another hotel from Asturias . Inntravel is the major travel agent with whom we work and specialise in independent holidays with a bias towards people who are interested in walking, good food and authentic accommodation.

Every 3 to 4 years they organise a travel fair where all their suppliers (destinations and hotels) are invited to exhibit their products. This year they celebrated it at the Heritage car museum in Warwickshire on Saturday the 6th.

Joe preparing the final details for the stand

In total there were about 60 stands (including ourselves) and it was attended by over 1,200 people, not bad considering entrance is by invitation only. The hotels supply information about what they have to offer; the accommodation, destination, activities etc. and normally have some products for the people to sample. This year we took our own apple juice and some local cheese for people to try.

Joe talks to potential customers, telling them how nice our hotel is!

I think it was a very successful event, with lots of interest being shown by people about what we are doing. In the evening there was a gala dinner with dancing for the suppliers and all in all we had an enjoyable, if not tiring, time.

Glad you liked the stand but I am not sure about this "fartucandome" or if the stand visitors would have liked it!

Love Dad
