June 2014
In May ETOA took part in two events in South East Europe. Speaking at the Fourth International Meeting for Tour Operators in Plovdiv, we highlighted the great opportunities for product development in the region in the context of Europe and also in developing markets. ETOA was also involved in the latest meeting developing the Roman and wine cultural routes along the lower Danube, who will be attending City Fair in 2015.

This year's City Fair will take place next week on 16th June and is set to be another success with 400 attendees from all over Europe. We are also holding an Indian Market seminar in conjunction with UKInbound on the 24th June at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
