The Co-operative Travel Consortium is running three round-table events for its members nationwide over the coming week.
Each networking and business update evening will be be held in local restaurants and attended by 40 members of the consortium, part of The Midcounties Co-operative.
The first takes place today (December 5) in Manchester, with the next on December 7 in Bristol and the last in London on December 12.
The events will include a business update by Alison Holmes, head of retailing for Your Co-op Travel for the Midcounties Co-operative, as well as a round-table discussion on opportunities in the year ahead and a look back at 2023.
The events are sponsored by partners including If Only, Ambassador Cruises and Riviera and give a chance for members to network and for the consortium to thank agents for their hard work.
Holmes said: “We’re delighted to be getting back on the road for this year’s consortium round-tables. The round-tables are our opportunity to express our thanks to our agent partners for their incredible support this year.
“It will also be a chance for us to come together to look ahead to next year, sharing updates on the latest developments ahead of another busy peaks trading season, whilst also acknowledging the highlights and learnings of the past 12 months.”
She added: “Being able to bring together so many like-minded and passionate agents is just one of the many benefits that being part of a co-operative brings, I’m looking forward to reaffirming our commitment to our members in ensuring they are fully supported and setting the stage for a successful 2024 together.”
