TORONTO — An expanded series of Granite Travel Trade Expos is set to take place this fall.
The travel events, launched with much success earlier this year, are coming to key Western Canada and Ontario markets this October and November.
“We listened to the agents who attended our spring shows, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive,” said Bradley Dean, Oakville Toronto Partner, Granite Productions. “Many were asking if we could bring the show to their communities so we’re very excited to be doing that with our fall expos.”
Attendance is free and the first 50 agents at each expo receive a $20 gas card.
Granite Productions will also run social media campaigns where 12 $50 gas gift cards will be available to be won by users who like, share, and follow @granite.productions on Instagram during September and October.
Participating suppliers at the 7-show series include Transat, WestJet Vacations, Playa Hotels & Resorts, Canada Jetlines, Riverside Luxury Cruises, Porter Airlines, MSC Cruises, Exodus Travels, the Jamaica Tourist Board, and many more.
Dean says each expo will offer training and networking, with face-to-face interaction with agents and suppliers. In each city, a presentation series featuring 15-minute segments by suppliers will be followed by a trade show, dinner and prize giveaways.
In Edmonton, the event will be held immediately following a scheduled Tourism Ireland event at the same venue.
