It is a long time since I’ve been to an event with such a useful, current set of sessions. Post pandemic, deciding to go to live events is a big decision, and it has to be worthwhile, which the BETA Summit most certainly is. I would heartily recommend it. James Charnock, Sales and Marketing Officer 

It’s always important to hear and learn more about what is going on. I attended the BETA Summit and left feeling. more positive, with a few takeaways refreshing my personal view on the industry overall and marketing Francisco Bustos, Senior Manager & Education Consultant

Great work BETA team! My first Youth Summit in attendance, and I can’t recommend it enough. If you care about the future of travel, get involved with BETA Ales Kosejk, Head of Business Development

The Summit was a great opportunity to listen to future trends in the industry, meet new people and catch up with partners & clients. James Herbertson, Director

The quality of the buyers and suppliers in attendance was fantastic. I rarely go to an event where the vast majority of meetings are likely to turn into business Matthew Nolan, Group Sales Manager

The right people, the right information and the opportunity to have your questions answered. The summit was an incredibly valuable but also enjoyable day. Georgia Pearson, International Business Development

An informative and well-organised event hosted by BETA. Katie Weller, Travel Trade Sales Manager

Great networking opportunities with key decision-makers. The day was very productive and fun with a great balance of interesting seminars and appointments. Thanks BETA! Karen Page, Commercial Director

At a time when much of our focus is on business today, it was great to be able to look up at the horizon and imagine what things will look like in 5 or 10 years and how we prepare for that future. Stefan Wathan, CEO

I thoroughly enjoyed the event and it was well worth the trip from Manchester to London and the time invested into attending. The content of the sessions was brilliant and gave me a great insight into the challenges around travel for young people today and what young people’s  expectations are from a venue or destination abroad. I made some great connections too. Overall it was a really great event. Gemma Hill
