Holidaymakers flocked to a cruise and travel show at Wyboston Lakes Executive Centre.
The show, organised by Cruise Select in Bedford was a smaller version of big London events, more intimate and personal thus allowing visitors to gain the expert information they needed.
A host of presentations ran throughout the day and most were fully booked.
They ranged from the UK’s foremost cruise journalist Jane Archer to Great Rail Journeys, Celebrity Cruises to local ladies boutique owner Anne Furbank, with each one providing extremely informative advice.
The exhibitors were all ‘hands on deck’ and armed with brochures and knowledge they offered advice and inspiration to both the seasoned and novice traveller.
The Cruise Select team were also available throughout the day answering questions and booking holidays with many guests taking advantage of the exclusive show offers.
The feedback from the 500 visitors who attended has been excellent.
Dave who travelled from Kent said: “I’m not normally a fan of shows. I usually take a quick look around before heading home but this was altogether more civilised than those big city events. I will be back next year.”
Cruise Select were once again raising money for their nominated charity Keech Hospice Care and held a raffle with over 45 prizes including a first prize of a Royal Caribbean short break cruise plus £200 spending money.
Members of staff from Keech Hospice attended on the day and were delighted to confirm that £1,225 was raised.
