The agency will look to highlight seminars and tours at January’s Adventure Travel Show, while also promoting Upper Street Events’ London and Birmingham Cruise Shows.

Thiago Alves, event director for the Cruise Shows and Adventure Travel Show at Upper Street Events, said: “We look forward to working with Hills Balfour to achieve this by widening the pool of attendees and attracting more holidaymakers to the adventure travel and cruise sectors.”

Following a competitive pitch, we are excited to have the opportunity to support Upper Street Events’ mission to increase the number of visitors to the shows.”
