Graham Balmforth returns as Tipto Supershow host

Former Super Break national sales manager Graham Balmforth will reprise his role as Supershow compere for Tipto.

Balmforth retired in January 2018 but returned to the industry to host the roadshow events last year, as the supplier marketing organisation had revamped the format.

As quiz master, he will invite agents to compete for prizes at the shows, which will be themed in line with Tipto’s 20th birthday celebrations.

Prizes include a £1,000 holiday voucher to spend with any Tipto supplier member; the chance to join a fam trip; shopping vouchers worth up to £100; hotel stays; gift vouchers; and Tipto goodie bags.

Previously Tipto chairman from 2010-2012, Balmforth attended the inaugural meeting of the organisation in 1999.

He said: “I’m delighted to be back again this year hosting the Supershows. The new format has met with great feedback from agents and we hope to make it bigger and better for Tipto’s 20th year.”

Jane Atkins, Tipto chairman, added: “It’s so fitting to have Graham back hosting our Supershows 20 years after he helped to kick things off at Tipto.

“He’s popular within the industry and there’s no doubt his revamp of the format last year was a huge success.”

The shows will be in Southampton (February 25), Liverpool (March 19), Newcastle (April 2), West Midlands Safari Park (May 1) and Leeds (May 15).
