Video: Thousands expected as doors open for Belfast Telegraph Holiday World Show 2019

The Belfast Telegraph Holiday World Show - Northern Ireland’s favourite annual celebration of travel and tourism - unpacked and put the beach towel down at the Titanic Exhibition Centre on Friday.

The event which runs until Sunday is the must visit location to get the best ideas - and prices - for your holidays over the coming year.

Broadcaster and author Paul Martin who spent 17 years travelling the length and breadth of the country for the BBC’s Flog It programme, cut the ribbon for the popular event, now on its 27th edition.

Tens of thousands are set to flood through the doors for the hundreds of exhibitors from close to home and around the world who have all set to inspire and excite with everything that is hot in the world of travel.

The three-day show hosts everything from international tourist boards, destinations, airlines and ferry companies to hotels and B&Bs, visitor attractions and a vast range of service providers.

Amongst the big new names checking in for a first visit to Belfast will be China's National Tourist Office, the Great Lakes region of the USA, the Madeira Promotion Bureau and the Turks & Caicos Tourist Board.

They will join the diverse cast of travel professionals at the three-in-one show where, in addition to the colourful attractions of the main exhibition, there will also be a 50+ Village, reflecting the continuing growth and buying power of that age group, and the ever-popular Caravan & Motorhome Show.
