Scottish agents are invited to #KnowYourNiche at evening events in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness

Three industry leading niche cruise lines – Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, the world’s most luxurious all-inclusive river cruise line, Hurtigruten, the world leader in expedition travel, and tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers – are coming together to host a Scottish roadshow in October, offering agents the chance to hear all about their award-winning products.

Representatives from Uniworld, Hurtigruten and Star Clippers will be on hand to share details about each of their niche cruise offerings and answer agents’ questions. Scottish agents will learn about the USPs and latest news from each brand, for example Uniworld’s brand new fully-inclusive luxury cruise package, as well as the incredible ports and routes of Star Clippers’ fleet of tall ships, and Hurtigruten’s new hybrid ship the MS Roald Amundsen, launching in 2018, which will take travellers in the footsteps of great Norwegian explorers.

The evening event will begin at 6.00pm with a drinks reception, followed by presentations by each of the brands, a light hot buffet, an exciting quiz and the chance to win some fantastic prizes. The roadshow will begin in Glasgow on Tuesday 3rd October at Club 28, before moving to the Doubletree Hilton in Edinburgh on Wednesday 4th October and finishing at the Royal Highland Hotel in Inverness on Thursday 5th October.

Dave Chidley from Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, commented: “We appreciate how busy agents are, and how hard it is to get out of the store but we also want agents to have the opportunity to fully understand our products and the unique experiences that we offer. So we’ve teamed up with our friends at Hurtigruten and Star Clippers and will be hitting the road with a series of enjoyable and informative events in Scotland. It’s a wonderful example of the industry working together to create something that will really be worthwhile and fun for agents to attend.”

To keep up to date with details of the roadshow from all three cruise lines, agents are encouraged to follow #KnowYourNiche on Twitter and Facebook and use the hashtag at the event.

To book a place on the roadshow, agents should RSVP to uk.events@hurtigruten.com with their name, agency, ABTA number and contact details.
