“As part of our overall strategy we feel it is important to have a regular presence in Group Leisure & Travel magazine. It is always easy to work with the Group Leisure & Travel team and agree our budget for the year ahead. They will often have new ideas and options we had not considered. It is not always about direct results in the groups market, but about building relationships and having a constant presence which we feel we achieve by featuring regularly. We are excited to see what the new website brings and what opportunities there may be to feature on it, once we have our new budget in place!”
