Destinations: The Holiday and Travel Show is the essential event for travel inspiration. In its 22nd year, it's the UK's longest-running and biggest travel show, and will take place from 29 January - 1 February 2015 in its new venue at Olympia London in Kensington.

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.

If photography's your bag, enjoy the annual Wanderlust magazine exhibition of travel photography in their Wanderlust Travel Photography of the Year Gallery - the largest of its kind in the UK. Alternatively, visit the Travel Photography Masterclass to receive expert wildlife photography advice from professional photographer Steve Davey.

Don't miss the brand new Stanfords Travel Writers' Festival that has a fantastic line-up of the top travel authors. This year, guests include broadcaster and journalist Kate Adie, poet Simon Armitage, TV presenter and author Simon Reeve and explorer Levison Wood.

Experience the World features four focus sections: Experience the Americas, Experience Asia, Experience Africa and Experience Europe. Inside, get a taste for world cultures, including world food and drink, cultural performances and interactive displays.

The MASTA Travel Health Clinic offers essential travel health advice, and offers the chance for you to have your immunisations at the show. Finally, take break in the No 1 Lounge Experience, where you can relax with complementary refreshments. All in all, this year's Destinations Show is a must for any seasoned and discerning traveller.
