The show features over 70 tourist boards from across the world, 500 of the UK's leading specialists, cultural entertainment, travel celebrities and exclusive show offers that attract around 40,000 travel connoisseurs every year.

There are some fantastic regular attractions. Listen to talks by travel experts in the Meet The Experts Theatres to get informed advice. Get inspired at The Visit USA Pavilion - where you will find the largest ever array of North American tourist boards.

Alternatively, visit the Travel Photography Masterclass to receive expert wildlife photography advice from professional photographer Steve Davey.
