Travel agents are being encouraged to attend a road show promoting Brazil and Brazilian suppliers to the UK travel trade.

The Visit Brazil Travel Association Brazilian road show will travel to Bristol on May 15, Brighton on May 16 and Manchester on May 17.

Between eight and ten exhibitors are expected with 180 agents at all three events.

A list of exhibitors will be publicised at the beginning of May by the organisers.

VBRATA Europe chairman Chris Fuzinatto said: “The VBRATA Brazilian Road Show, which is in its 14th edition in the UK, is an annual event organised to promote Brazil to British travel agents.

“This edition of the VBRATA Brazilian Road Show will take place in Brazilian restaurants, so we can also promote Brazilian gastronomy to the agents.

“With support from UK-based suppliers, we will cover these three important UK cities, stimulating travel agents to find out more about Brazil.”
