NorthLink Ferries Showcases Orkney and Shetland at Leading Tourism Event

The NorthLink Ferries Travel Trade team have returned from exhibiting at this year’s Best of Britain and Ireland show for the tourism and venue industry.

The show, which took place over two days at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, featured more than 250 exhibiting companies including NorthLink Ferries who were on hand to develop itineraries for the Northern Isles.

After a successful exhibit NorthLink Ferries expects to see more than 7,500 passengers within group tours travelling on board this year, with more than 2,900 passengers already booked for travel in 2016.

Stuart Garrett, Managing Director at Serco NorthLink Ferries, said: “Best of Britain and Ireland gives us the perfect chance to showcase what NorthLink Ferries, the Orkney and Shetland Isles and the North East of Scotland have to offer.

“The event provides fantastic networking opportunities for companies operating in the tourism sector and we made a number of new connections which will lead to a positive impact on future business.”

Next, NorthLink Ferries is set to exhibit at VisitScotland expo 2015 on home turf in Aberdeen on 22 and 23 April 2015.  The team can be found within the Orkney and Shetland area on stand C25/27/29.
