'Lake Bled' to host 2013 Conference

The Travel Network Group has announced today that its 2013 Conference will be hosted in Slovenia's Lake Bled.

The official conference programme will run from the evening of May 17th 2013 and conclude at lunchtime on Sunday 19th May 2013.

Gary Lewis, Group Managing Director, The Travel Network Group said: "We wanted a conference destination with a difference for our next overseas event, a destination that was less mass-market and one that our members may not have visited before. We believe that Lake Bled will be a very popular choice not only because of its sheer beauty but because of its 2-hour flight time from the UK, its proximity to the airports in Ljubljana and Trieste, and its fine weather during the Spring months."

Iztok Jarc, his Excellency the Slovenian Ambassador to the UK, added: "I am delighted that The Travel Network Group has taken the decision to come to Lake Bled for this important event. Slovenia is a beautiful country with great tourist potential and I am very confident that the Group will have an excellent conference here next year. I am also looking forward to further business developments between our two countries."

Mr Lewis added that with the help of the Slovenian Tourist Board Delegate rates will be held at the same levels as the Group's last conference which took place in September 2011 at Spain's PortAventura. "The current market remains very challenging and therefore we have heavily subsidised conference rates to ensure that members get maximum value," he said.

Tine Murn, Slovenian Tourist Board UK, Office at The Embassy of Slovenia, London, added: "We are all extremely excited and happy to be selected as the destination for The Travel Network Group's 2013 conference, and we will do everything we can to secure an outstanding event next year. The London Office of the Slovenian Tourist office firmly believes that this is great news, both for The Travel Network Group and Slovenian tourism, and will relish the opportunity to extend the warmest welcome to this important grouping of travel specialists from the UK. We are confident that we will help the Travel Network Group host one of their best conferences ever."

Further details of the event will be announced over the coming months.
