National Sales Manager, Martin Slater, recently met up with Sally Jenkins - Business Development Travel Trade, who arranged a personal guided tour of this wonderful venue. As we feature this attraction in our Longleat and Wiltshire Highlights tour (page 123 in our 2016 Group Travel Guide), I felt it important to witness at first-hand what it had to offer.
Gina Halden (B2B Account Manager) and Britta Voegele (European Product Consultant) have recently enjoyed a famililiarisation trip to the Black Forest area of Germany.
To celebrate Halloween, some of the staff at Greatdays have dressed accordingly for the day. Our picture shows the Sales & Marketing team comprising Martin Slater, Jan Hurst, Gina Halden, Claire Buckley & Zoe Aspin together with intern, Vitalij Jurgilevic. Your challenge is to guess who's who! So don't be SCARED – give us a call .....we won't BITE!
Greatdays' staff, family and friends enjoyed a guided walking tour of Manchester on Sunday 9th November with Sue McCarthy, an official Green Badge Guide registered with the Institute of Tour Guiding.
Zoë from our Sales department and Charlotte from our UK operations team travelled to Norwich last week, visiting a variety of hotels that we use as bases for our Norfolk trips but also to attend the dress rehearsal of the famous Thursford Christmas Spectacular!
With shopping in mind I boarded my Tap Portugal flight to Lisbon to enjoy 2 days on a fam trip program called Fall winter shopping and more in Lisbon, what more could a shopaholic want.
I, Jan the Marketing Manager, and my husband John, took advantage of a fam trip to Yorkshire, organised by the Cedar Court Hotel Wakefield and had a fantastic weekend.
Gina, our B2B Account Manager, has recently returned from an interesting and thought provoking first-time visit to the battlefields of the Great War in France.
Here are Claire and Zoë in 'Sales' mode ready for the opening of the Great For Groups North Show held at Old Trafford 'Theatre of Dreams' Stadium on the 3rd of September. Perhaps not the best location for them, as Claire is a big Liverpool fan and Zoë prefers Manchester City!
Known as 'Breizh' in the Breton language, Brittany is a region that is very distinct from the rest of France and Alexandra and Kymmene had the opportunity to hop over the Channel to discover more about it.
Gina, a member of our Sales Team and one of our B2B Account Managers, has recently returned from a successful combination Sales Trip and Familiarisation Visit to both Northern and Southern Ireland.
A longstanding wish was fulfilled this weekend when Zoë – one of our Private Groups Account Managers visited Disneyland Paris. As you can see – she enjoyed meeting Mickey Mouse immensely, in fact they got on so well that they had breakfast together on Monday and Tuesday, along with Eeyore, Goofy, Pluto and the Chipmunks!
With the Eurovision over what was Claire an account manager for B2C sales to do now? Well Holland was calling and off she went on a fam trip to the Arnhem, Nijmegen Veluwe region. After only visiting Amsterdam this would be her first experience of the area courtesy of the Regiomarketing Gelderland.
Hot on the heels of her colleague's trip to Austria, Alexandra in the European team took advantage of some good midweek flights and visited the beautiful, cultural and artistic city of Barcelona. With direct flights from all over the UK, this city is a true gem of Spain.
Kym, from the European department, has just returned from Austria, where she has been exploring the Salzburgerland and Tirol areas.
Yes Christmas really did come early on Friday 7th March at the Best Western Premier Hotel in Chester, where we held our annual 'Taster', for over 80 potential Operators and Group Organisers.
The three day event is organised and hosted by Flanders Tourism which included a walking chocolate tour, outdoor performance and light show called 'Spectacle Wintervonken' and naturally you cannot visit Belgium and pass on the opportunity to sample a few of their specialist beers.
Here they are again, Zoe and Claire in costume ready for a busy day at the aptly named 'Great Days Out Fair', held at Event City next to the Trafford Centre.
Here we are ready for the Tourism & Events Showcase exhibition, which was held on Saturday 1st February at the Thackray Medical Museum. One good point about this event, being that they hold it at a different venue each year and they also choose venues that are also visitor attractions.
January is a busy month and sees the start of the usual trade exhibitions. Excursions celebrated it's 10th year of exhibiting at Alexandra Palace on Saturday 25th and expanded the venue by moving into the 'Great Hall'.
