GoCruise & Travel and Fred. Olsen Travel Host Biggest Ever Annual Conference Combining Retail, Franchise, Licensee and Tour Operation

GoCruise & Travel, in partnership with parent brand, Fred. Olsen Travel, recently held their largest ever annual conference at the Latimer De Vere Estate in Chesham. Taking place on 23rd and 24th April and attracting 186 attendees, this was the first conference to combine all elements of the business – retail, franchise, licensee and tour operation – in order to provide teams and business owners with a comprehensive overview of the company, update on all the latest news and celebrate the success of 2023.

The two-day conference, which had the theme ‘Don’t Stop Us Now’, included key business sessions from trade partners from both the cruise and travel sectors to help improve product knowledge, as well as an interactive marketplace providing members with an opportunity for one-to-one meetings with the Fred. Olsen Travel head office team and trade partners. In addition, there were presentations covering the progress of the business as a whole, while various networking opportunities allowed delegates to share ideas and discuss collaboration.

The conference ended with a gala dinner and an amazing performance by Queen tribute act, Supersonic Queen.

Colin Martin-Weekes, GoCruise & Travel’s franchise general manager, comments: “It was our pleasure to host and arrange what was the biggest event we have put on as a business. I cannot thank our trade partners enough for their support and interactions, our head office team for making it all happen, and our wonderful team members and business owners for taking time out to attend what was undoubtedly the highlight of the year so far. It was such a great feeling to bring every part of the business together and to collaborate and exchange ideas. We are all looking forward to great things in 2024 for the Fred. Olsen Travel Group.”
