First in-person events since 2019 to be staged by Co-op Travel Consortium

Pre-peaks roadshows in London, Leeds and Manchester next week will be the first in-person events arranged by Co-op Travel Consortium since before the pandemic in 2019.

More than 60 members of the 135-strong Midcounties Co-operative group are due to attend the events, which will feature a business update from Alison Holmes, head of Co-op Travel Consortium, a supplier presentation, an update from the commercial team, Q&A, and a festive networking lunch to finish.

Supplier, Vertical Travel Group, will provide an update at all three events, Cosmos will present to members at the Manchester roadshow and Classic Collection at the London and Leeds events.

 The roadshows take place on December 7 at H10 Hotel in London, December 8 at DoubleTree by Hilton, Manchester and December 9 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Leeds.

Holmes said: “We’re delighted to be bringing our annual pre-peaks roadshows back this December, after a hiatus during the pandemic. We’ve enjoyed seeing our members at virtual events and conferences over the past 18 months, but nothing beats getting together in-person.

“The roadshows will provide the opportunity for us to update our agent partners on the latest news and developments from the consortium and to ensure they are fully supported as we move into 2022. Agents will also receive valuable updates from our commercial team and some of their key suppliers.

 “We’ll also use the roadshows to congratulate our members on getting through such a tough year and thank them for their hard work and dedication to their customers. We want to arm them as best we can for peaks and let them know that we’re here to support them with whatever 2022 brings.”
