Bristol is a great value place for group visits as it has so much variety. Bristol also benefits from its location and ample accommodation, which makes it a a great base for a longer stay to visit the Cotswolds, Bath and Stonehenge.
Destination Bristol work with our members interested in the groups markets to formulate campaigns aimed specifically at the groups market. There are typically two or three small campaigns per year where members can ‘buy in’ and take advantage of a larger Bristol presence. Campaigns are typically around themes such as Christmas shopping and summer day trips, etc.
We send a quarterly e-news to our groups and trade databases, which include the members of Association of Group Travel Organisers (AGTO) and Coach Tourism Council (CTC), as well as sending pro-active press releases with news to relevant group travel media. If you have news to share, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Events and FAM trips
Destination Bristol can also help plan and execute familiarisation visits for GTOs, often with a media partner. Please get in touch for more details.
Itineraries are produced on a continual basis, many specifically for the groups market. Check here for a full list of the latest itineraries.
The Visit Bristol website has many pages dedicated specifically to groups, many of which have bespoke member descriptions to include details such as coach parking facilities. Let us know if you need to update your listings. There are also pages here that you may find useful to direct group organisers to, to help them with transport and other vital information.
If you wish to find out more about working with groups, please contact the marketing team for help and advice. There is also a groups workshop exclusively for Destination Bristol members, held at least once a year.
