Big Tent Event

The Travlaw Big Tent Event has been growing in size and stature since the inaugural event in 2009 and is now firmly established in the travel industry calendar.

Held every year in January, attracts the great and the good of the travel industry, as well as those offering support services to the travel sector, in a unique evening event where serious business, networking and socialising go hand-in-hand.

The first event took place in the back room of a bar in 2009 in front of just  50 people, and has year on year grown into one of Travlaw’s flagship events, now attracting nearly 200 industry professionals to hear high quality guest speakers and insight from our top ranked team.

The 2020 iteration is sure to be the most exciting yet. Entitled ‘20-20: Rising Out of the Ashes‘, it’ll be covering all the issues facing the travel industry in the wake of the failure of Thomas Cook, Brexit, and fast-changing landscape.

Confirmed speakers include renowned travel journalist Simon Calder, as well as Simon Bunce, Director of Legal Affairs at ABTA. There’ll be a fantastic opportunity to network across various sectors, entertainment, food, drink and discussions and Q&A’s with our expert panel.

This year, we’re also supporting our chosen charity for 2020, ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’, who work to grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses. On the night we’ll be holding a raffle with some exciting prizes as we work toward our aim of raising £5000 to put towards a worthwhile cause!

Our sponsors for this fabulous event are Taskers Travel Risk Professionals, White Hart Associates, and Barclays Commercial. Our Media Partners are Travel Weekly
