Youhotels.com has chosen Sharm el Sheikh as the destination for its VIP trade trip this year. The accommodation provider is working with the Egyptian Tourist Board to arrange the fam, which will be held from 13-16 October. Paul Riches, sales and marketing director at Youhotels.com said the company wanted to show a commitment to the country, which has remained a popular destination despite the unrest earlier this year. “Egypt has had a tough year so far. We wanted to show our support to the tourist board and do our part to show off this fabulous country,” he explained. “This will be the fifth time we have hosted our ‘VIP trip’ and remains one of the landmarks in our business calendar. It provides an invaluable way of catching up with and thanking key players in a relaxed and informal setting.” Forty top-selling agents and key suppliers will be invited on the trip from all markets.
