The Truly Independent Professional Travel Organisation (TIPTO) has revealed the details of its agent roadshows for February, March and April,  with Tunbridge Wells featured for the first time.

Between February 10 and April 27, the roadshows will visit seven different towns and cities across the UK to give independent agents the chance to meet and get product information from TIPTO’s 16 members.

The full programme is:

10 February              Stoke on Trent – Best Western Moathouse
11 February              Worcester – Sixways Worcester Warriors
10 March                  Bournemouth – Marriott Highcliffe
11 March                  Tunbridge Wells – Spa Hotel
16 March                  Solihull – St John’s Hotel
17 March                  Chester – Racecourse
27 April                    Glasgow – Hilton Grosvenor
TIPTO chairman Graham Balmforth said:  “Many organisations are cutting back on this kind of face-to-face interaction with agents, but even in the current economic climate they are very productive for TIPTO members.

“The calibre of agents is always really good and we are told time and time again how beneficial the agents find the events, which build their product knowledge, help them to develop relationships with operators who want to support them, and play a big part in boosting business.”
