Harewood House will be the venue for a Tourism and Events Showcase which aims to bring together group and event organisers with members of the travel trade industry.

The two day event will include a magical mystery coach tour around Yorkshire’s most attractive tourism destinations, including Harlow Carr Gardens, Lightwater Valley and Newby Hall & Gardens.

On Saturday, February 4, there will be an exhibition in the Pavilion overlooking Harewood House that will bring together people from more than 60 attractions, venues, destinations, tour operators and accommodation providers. Theer will be opportunities to discuss requirements face-to-face and pick up new and exciting ideas for group activities.

The next day will be set aside for trips to 21 major attractions in the region.

The event is being held by Group Travel Organiser magazine, and sponsored by the Yorkshire Attractions Group and Leeds Pennine Yorkshire.

Adrian Gates from Group Travel Organiser said: “We chose Harewood House as a venue for this important event not only because the building provides a magnificent backdrop but because of its accessible location close to the A1/M1 - within easy reach of the wider Yorkshire region - and its proven track record for hosting large-scale events of the highest standard.

“It’s fantastic news for Harewood and Yorkshire as a whole that events of this calibre will be held here.”
