Sunday April 13th 2014 was the date of our very first Silver Travel Show.
We decided to hold it at the Tudor Park Marriott Hotel just outside of Maidstone in Kent, and we invited along a selection of our partner companies as exhibitors.
We were also very fortunate to have a celebrity speaker who was none other than John Carter, former presenter of The Holiday Show and Wish You Were Here.
The day dawned bright and sunny and we opened the doors at 1030 to welcome a crowd of Silver Travellers who enjoyed a busy morning visiting travel experts from across the globe and attending a variety of talks.
Here’s what some of them had to say about their day out:
“We enjoyed the travel show because it was not crowded and listening to John Carter was so entertaining. We go to Earl’s Court and Olympia for holiday shows but Kent is much better for us to attend, and everyone was very friendly.”
“Thank you for your Holiday Event at the Marriott Hotel near Maidstone today. Very informative and enjoyable.”
“Huge congratulations for today, you did it well. Lovely atmosphere and very relaxed plus the excellent talks.”
