Next Event

Unite Indian Ocean & Middle East

Friday 28th February 2025

First introduced in 2009, this very quickly became the ‘must do’ event for UK and European-based tour operators & selected agents and Indian Ocean & Middle Eastern suppliers: tourist boards, hoteliers, representation companies, airlines, ground handlers and car hire companies.

Held in central London, this is the only, UK based, dedicated event for these regions allowing the key decision-makers to hold pre-scheduled, one-to-one meetings at the start of the busy contracting period

The 2025 event will take place on Friday 28th February and will take place at the QE II Centre, Westminster, London.

Full details will be available in the Autumn.
