Destination Britain North America is our largest event outside of Britain, held this year in Austin, Texas. This three-day event offers British tourism suppliers the opportunity to nurture business relationships with the North American markets of Canada and the United States.
Destination Britain North America offers UK suppliers the unique opportunity to meet over 80 buyers from these extremely valuable markets as well as attend seminars and workshops. Outside of the business meetings and workshops there is a cocktail reception and Gala dinner, offering more opportunities to network with buyers and create new business leads.
All buyers are pre-qualified and the meeting schedule is based on both buyer and supplier preferences. This means that not only will you have the chance to enhance existing relationships but discover new businesses.
The event directory includes business profiles and contact details of all attendees, offering you invaluable contacts to build your database whilst gaining exposure to buyers.
Hotel stay, lunch and refreshments on 15,16 October are included in the fee.
