“The Hotel Collection are delighted to be returning to Best of Britain & Ireland for 2015. BoBI gives us the opportunity to promote our new name and fantastic collection of unique hotels prominently and widely to the market place.

Elaine Ward, Travel Trade Sales Director, The Hotel Collection
“West Midland Safari and Leisure Park will be exhibiting again this year for the third consecutive year. Each year has been more successful than the previous. Not only have we made many new contacts but it has also proven to offer an ideal opportunity to meet with existing clients to inform about new products or just to have a ‘catch-up’. This is an extremely well organised and well thought out event. It is ideally located and convenient to draw visitors from most parts of the country.”
Sue Day, Guest Relations Officer, West Midland Safari & Leisure Park
“BoBI is the only domestic leisure show that we exhibit at and we find it is a great way to meet with existing and new clients. We have seen a good ROI from the show in the past three years and look forward to seeing the show continue to grow.”
