The Group Travel Leader will publish its annual Buyers Guide issue in September as many travel groups begin reasserting their travel independence. For more than 25 years, this annual planning resource has defined travel opportunities and options for groups for the year ahead.
“The timing could not be better for this huge undertaking this year,” said vice president and executive editor Brian Jewell. “The fall of 2020 is being looked at by many observers as a realistic launch point for Americans’ re-entry into the realm of travel. It’s an exciting time for all of us in this great industry as we begin our journey toward travel recovery.”
The Buyers Guide will include in-depth interviews with major trade association leaders, suggestions for travel options that will play well with re-emerging travelers, issues to be confronted as groups travel again, and other key topics. Thousands of travel planners look to this issue each year for guidance.
“Hopefully, many travel companies and destinations can begin to recover what they’ve lost these past several months,” said sales and marketing vice president Kelly Tyner. “We have all been impacted in what began as a remarkable year for travel and travel destinations. Kyle and I look forward to working with anyone and everyone who is able to begin marketing to groups again.”
