Youtravel’s 2023 roadshows are under way, giving agents the chance to boost product knowledge and win fabulous prizes including hotel stays.

The roadshows began last month – in partnership with Travel Gossip – with more planned during the year.

The Youtravel team has so far visited Leeds, Newcastle and Stirling, bringing hotel and tourism partners from Spain and Portugal together with travel agents wanting to find out more about the region.

Six more roadshows are in the diary, three of which will focus on Turkey and North Africa in May, while the final three will focus on UAE and long haul in September.

Youtravel Partnerships Marketing Manager Josh Lewis, pictured above with Chief Sales Officer Matt Carpenter (left) and Key Account Manager Orla Kern said: “This is the first time we’ve partnered with Travel Gossip on our roadshows and so far it has been fabulous.

“Our feedback from the partners who joined us has been fantastic!

“They particularly really enjoyed the unique locations we used – The Leeds Royal Armoury and Airth Castle in Stirling.

“They loved the format – welcome drinks, speed networking, dinner and drinks and prize giveaways – not to mention the quality and engaging agents that turned up in full force each night.”

Each partner – Madeira Promotions Bureau, La Palma Tourism, Valentin Hotels and Resorts, Alegria Hotels , Vincci Hotels, Invisa Hotels and Blau Hotels – gave away a prize, including hotel stays of up to seven nights.

The main sponsor of last month’s Spain and Portugal roadshows was VIK Gran Hotel Costa del Sol.
