Travel Counsellors Meet Ronan in Manchester at Global Conference

Travel Counsellors’ Annual Global Conference was held in Manchester, UK, with a record guest-list of over 1,600, including 50 TCs, partners and head office team from Ireland.

Throughout the three-day event, delegates were entertained by celebrities, inspired by motivational speakers, and networked with 220 suppliers, including headline sponsors P&O Cruises and Cunard, Travelport, Royal Caribbean International, Club Med and Celebrity Cruises.

Celebrity host Vernon Kay returned for the third year running, and special guests included branding expert Alex Hunter, Green & Black’s co-founder Jo Fairley, and Dame Kelly Holmes, who left delegates feeling energised and inspired to reach their goals for 2017. Attendees were entertained by the hilarious Jack Whitehall, wowed by an intimate performance from Ronan Keating, and met directly with valued travel partners.

Travel Counsellors were also recognised with awards and prizes totalling over €164,000. Irish Travel Counsellor Sarah McCarthy won Global Top Performer for TC Tailor-made Package Sales, an award for which her fellow Cork woman, Mary Foyle, was also short-listed.
