SOME of the biggest names in travel will be gathering in Ilkley next weekend.

The inaugural Yorkshire Travel Expo takes place at the King’s Hall and Winter Garden from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, February 29.

More than 20 established companies, including global firms and local businesses, will be attending with Ilkley-based travel consultant and organiser John Redding welcoming guests.

The event has been organised to help travellers discuss their plans and find out what is new in the world of travel - including this year’s top destinations.

Complimentary refreshments will be available and the first 100 people through the door will receive a ‘goody bag’.

Entry is free but anyone who pre-registers through Eventbrite - a link is available on The Yorkshire Travel Expo Facebook page - will entered into a prize draw.
