RDA prepares for Friedrichshafen exhibition

Around 350 exhibitors have signed up for the RDA Group Travel Expo exhibition on 20-21 April 2017 in Friedrichshafen. This is the second year for the new RDA event which targets coach and group tourism buyers throughout the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.

RDA Members are being invited to attend this year’s RDA Annual General Meeting which will take place ahead of the exhibition on Wednesday 19 April. Important decisions will be taken at this meeting, including the election of a new president.

The annual RDA event in Cologne takes place on 4-5 July.

“Both RDA Group Travel Expo 2017 exhibitions complement each other,” says Karin Urban, Managing Director, Hotels & More. “In April in Friedrichshafen, we meet the ‘early birds’ who know that it makes sense to contract some destinations early. In July in Cologne, we speak to clients who would like to have a better knowledge of the current season before buying for next year. Both approaches make sense and that is why such a large number of coach tour operators attended both exhibitions last year in order to be ahead of the game.”
