    ExploreGB is a wonderful event that certainly helped me to find new avenues for promoting the UK to my clients. There is so much that the UK has to offer and ExploreGB is a wonderful way to showcase that.

    ExploreGB is a great event for allowing suppliers and buyers to connect and trade ideas for increasing travel to Britain. It's a key event in my product development programme. Well organised with productive meetings and valuable networking time between.
