The Guild runs a busy programme of events throughout the year – some for members only, some for invited guests, and some for paying members of the industry.

Our main public event is the Annual Gala Awards Dinner, on the eve of World Travel Market in November. Several times a year we hold parties, including in the summer and at Christmas, as well as workshops on important topics and skills presented by top experts from within the Guild and / or outside.

If you are a Guild member with an idea for an event, or a PR / venue looking to host an event, please email robert@bgtw.org, thanks.
