Organiser of the antipodean TNT Travel Show 2010 has recorded a 28 per cent increase in footfall year-on-year. Held at London’s Ibis Hotel at Earls Court on 13 March, the one-day, free-entry exhibition attracted 10,513 visitors. CEO of TNT, Kevin Ellis describes as “phenomenal” the rise in visitors to the show which, he says, “speaks volumes for the strength of the TNT brand, the power it has to reach its optimistic community of travel-hungry young people”. TNT Events is the exhibitions and events arm of antipodeans-focused TNT Magazine and targets Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans living and travelling in the UK with all exhibitors offering discounted deals for visitors. Many exhibitors recorded huge increases in bookings. Global marketing manager for Topdeck Tours, Jim Zambrano, says: “We had high expectations for the event and I am happy to report that we smashed all our targets. Bookings were up 65 per cent on last year’s show.”Exhibitionnews.co.uk’s video camera was there to capture the breaking of a Guinness World Record by 26-year-old Australian Sebastian Terry, who, following the death of a close friend, created a list of 100 things he’d like to do in his lifetime. Terry successfully broke the Guinness World Record of crushing as many eggs as possible with his toes in 30 seconds.
