Following the presentations it was time for networking to begin, attendees were split into key networking groups to take a tour of the London Transport Museum and spend the afternoon getting to know new and old faces over drinks and canapés.

To add an additional engagement factor, publishers were given the task of completing a networking quiz, Congratulations to Luke Matthews from MyVoucherCodes, who managed to answer the most questions correctly!

To round up the day and kick off the weekend it was onto the pub round the corner, to carry on conversations and relax!

We would like to say an additional thanks to Explore, Inghams and Holiday Extras for providing some great goodies, for the Publisher Goody Bags.

museum“This year’s All Aboard was a fantastic success. The London Transport Museum was the perfect backdrop for our annual travel sector event and the attendees enthusiastically took the opportunity to wander around the museum and take in the fascinating evolution of travel in London over the last 200 years. Our keynote talk from guest speaker Simon Ferguson brought everyone up-to-date with the latest trends in the online travel world and was a real highlight for me – an entertaining and thought-provoking speech that set the tone for the rest of the event. Thanks to everyone that made it along!”Rob Davinson, Vertical Travel Specialist, Awin
