About the event



Families come in all shapes and sizes – and so do their holidays. Whether it’s a laid back beach break, an action-packed city stay or an exotic jungle trek, this definitely isn’t one size fits all territory.

But just like all the best children’s stories, family trips must have one thing in common – a happy ending and a trail of joyful memories along the way.

As parents, there are few things more thrilling than exploring the world and seeing it through the wide-eyed wonderment of our children, and there is nowhere better to start such a journey than at the Family Travel Show – the ideal launch pad from which to plan such trips.

This year’s Family Travel Show returns to Olympia on 1 - 2 October 2016, bigger and better than before with a larger venue, more attractions, and new show features.

Families can explore new holiday destinations, dip a toe into the world of cruising or go wild and plan a safari. They can choose from luxury hotels, rustic rainforest retreats and swanky all-inclusive resorts – and all under one roof.


Family holidays have never been so popular and as families become better-travelled, so their demand for knowledge, inspiration and insightful guidance grows ever higher.

There are more types of child-friendly holidays than ever before, and the Family Travel Show showcases them in a lively, fun environment where companies can connect, engage – and most importantly – do business with visiting families keen to gather ideas and book their next holiday.

By bringing together the disparate range of travel products in this ever-growing sector, the Family Travel Show not only attracts an audience of affluent families, but gives family travel firms a stronger voice with which to speak to them.
