LONDON (3rd August, 2023) – Global Travel Collection UK (GTC UK), part of Internova Travel Group, will host a Summer Get Together on the evening of Thursday 24th August. The event will bring together more than 75 luxury travel advisors with preferred partners.
Travel advisors in attendance will be from GTC UK, which incorporates Colletts Travel, Protravel and Tzell Travel across leisure, corporate and entertainment markets. Leadership from Global Travel Collection and Internova Travel Group will also be in attendance, including Angie Licea, President of Global Travel Collection, and Albert Herrera, Executive Vice President, Partner Relations at Internova Travel Group. The evening soiree, organised by Abhishek Shankar, Senior Manager, Partner Relations & Marketing EMEA, with event management executed by sister company, Your Event Solutions (YES), will be held at the Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park in London.
The event is borne out of the need to celebrate the half year mark of 2023, and connect advisors and supplier partners to build business connections, as the business enters the final half of the year. Key to this, is hosting the event in the month of August, when business activity is lessened, and advisors can take a step back from their day-to-day.
“A fundamental part of the ‘Summer Get Together’ will be key to connect key partners with GTC UK travel advisors face-to-face and provide an optimum networking environment. As a result of demand from our advisors and suppliers, we are planning to make this an annual summer event,” said Abhishek Shankar. “Our luxury travel advisor and partner relationships are of the utmost importance, and we see the significance of bringing everyone together to further strengthen those partnerships.”
“We hosted SELECT Marketplace London at our London Headquarters at the end of last year, which was a huge success with overwhelming feedback from both our advisors and preferred partners. We’re looking forward to doing the same with an event in a summer setting, solely with our GTC UK advisors.” said Jason Oshiokpekhai, Managing Director at GTC UK.
Over 70 partners are confirmed to attend the ‘Summer Get Together’ this month. This includes Accor, Hilton Worldwide, Belmond Hotels, Design Hotels, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts, Rosewood Hotel Group, Standard Hotels, Rocco Forte Hotels, Dakota Hotels, Peninsula Hotels, Dorchester Collection, The SET Collection, Hyatt Hotels, Virgin Hotels, Oetker Collection, Maybourne Group, Leading Hotels of The World, IHG, Virgin & Delta Airlines, United Airlines & Air Canada, Silverseas Cruises and SeaDream Yacht Club.
