The Travel Network Group (TTNG) has demonstrated its on-going commitment to the cruise sector with the announcement that it will be hosting its second Cruise Conference later this year.
The ‘Evolve’ Cruise Conference will take place on Sunday November 13 at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club, near Birmingham, and the group expects to attract more than 125 delegates.
Si Prentice, the TTNG's group marketing director, said: “We’ve just hosted our most successful conference ever on Celebrity’s Eclipse and know that our conferences achieve real traction with members. At this year’s cruise conference we will have a host of high profile speakers from the UK cruise industry and a panel of industry experts sharing their views on the outlook for the sector.”
The theme of ‘Evolve’ has been chosen to showcase how the world of cruising is evolving and ties in with the group’s current marketing programme – ‘Engage, Energise and Evolve’, which is based around providing members with various tools such as seminars and consultation calls to help them build their businesses locally.
The group has also recently confirmed that it will be hosting a new Cruise Club TV programme on Hochanda - a Freeview Sky & Free Sat home shopping channel - that will start in the summer.
Cruise workshops will be staged in Woking and Manchester, which members can attend to develop their knowledge of the cruising industry and better understand the many services on offer through the group’s Cruise Club and its technology offering.
