We're showing Coventry off to the World this week!

12 March 2012

Following the announcement that Coventry has been awarded the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) Coach Friendly City Award, Coventry Transport Museum has joined up with two other prestigious Coventry attractions to promote the city to the group travel trade.

Along with Coventry Cathedral and the Belgrade Theatre Coventry, we will be hosting a joint stand at the Best of Britain & Ireland (BoBI) trade event at the NEC this week, under the banner ‘Inspirational Coventry’.

This will be the first time that a selection of Coventry attractions has joined together to attend an exhibition, and we're really looking forward to showing off the best of what Coventry has to offer group visitors. From the two side-by-side Cathedrals, to world class theatrical productions and the fastest car on Earth, we are convinced that there’s something to delight and inspire every type of visitor.

Coventry is a vibrant, exciting and inspirational city and the Best of Britain & Ireland exhibition is the perfect place for us to help promote the huge range of unique opportunities that Coventry offers the group travel trade.

Further to receiving the Coach Friendly City Award, Coventry is investing in a long-stay coach park at White Street with space for 24 coaches, and will also provide drop-off car parking provision along with taxi ranking space.

Best of Britain & Ireland (BoBI) is an industry showcase for exhibitors, trade visitors and VIP Hosted Buyers from overseas and the domestic market. BoBI sells the best of Britain and Ireland to British and international markets in a strictly trade-only business environment.

Inspirational Coventry can be found at Stand B35 at BoBI 2012, which will take place on 14 - 15 March in Hall 9 at the NEC, Birmingham.
