Newmarket Holidays Head of Trade Sales Richard Forde has been named new chair of the Truly Independent Professional Travel Organisation (TIPTO).

He replaces Nick Hughes, who recently left TIPTO member Gold Medal to join Princess Cruises.

Richard, pictured with Lorna Willis-Edwards, from Spirit Marketing and Events, the management company used by TIPTO, said: “When Newmarket Holidays joined TIPTO back in 2010, we were welcomed into the group and we grew in stature with the trade and our agent partners year after year thereafter.

“TIPTO is a great body for both agents and suppliers to learn and grow together, sharing new products, trends and market information and I am delighted and honoured to be taking over from the strong work that Nick has done and to continue to assist Lorna as she expands TIPTO with more members and more events.” 

TIPTO has just announced its 18th member, Blue Diamond Resorts, with a further two operators in the pipeline to start in 2023.

The group will be holding its nationwide Roadshows and Supershows as well as the Annual TIPTO Afternoon Tea in January and a VIP agent event in the summer.
