THE largest holiday show to ever take place in the region is to hit the University of Limerick Arena this weekend.

On Saturday February 3, and Sunday, February 4, the arena will play host to 90 exhibitors including airlines, hotels, cruise companies, travel agents, tourist boards, tour operators and more.

It’s anticipated record crowds will attend the free event, which attracts thousands of holiday makers from across the country each year.

It will run between 12noon and 5.30pm on both days.

Show organisers have advised holiday makers to book early this year, with last minute deals set to be few and far between due to the rush to snap up holidays for the likes of Spain, Portugal and the Canaries.

Edmund Hourican, managing director at Bizex, organisers of the Holiday Show said: “We have a great event lined up and the timing is excellent as it’s going to be a bumper year for holidays, the biggest in over a decade.”

In addition to free admission, there will also be free car parking and free kids entertainment.

Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to discuss and book their holidays with the travel experts and also be in with a chance to win many prizes on offer through the two day event. Exhibitors include airlines, tour operators, tourism attractions, cruise companies, caravan and camping motorhomes and of course many travel agents to help you book that summer break.
