Record levels of supplier rebookings for July M&IT Agency Challenge

The M&IT Agency Challenge returns to the award-winning Celtic Manor Resort for the 2018 event on July 18-19 with a record number of suppliers having rebooked from last year as well as new participants from the UK and overseas.

The unique interactive format has proved popular with both agency professionals and suppliers because of the high level of audience engagement generated.

Of the 2017 event, Barcelo Hotel Group’s Ann Marie Gildea said: “This was my third Agency Challenge, each time we come away with a new set of friends in the industry and great contacts to follow up. A refreshing change from the usual exhibition/forums. A superb event, well run and great fun to attend.”

Sandals & Beaches Resorts’ Paul Tidy said: “Excellent! One of the best events we have participated in – great energy, great networking opportunities, an invaluable presentation slot which is unique among these types of events.”

Capita Travel and Events’ Jane Norton said it was “Brilliant, well-organised, full of fun and the right level of suppliers attended” while Gill Wood of gmProjects said: “It was the most-productive two days out of the business I have ever spent.”
