About South West Group Travel’s Services

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and showing interest in my services. My name is Julia Pearce. I am a proud Devonian. I have worked in hospitality and travel since I was at school. I worked with many types groups over the years in hospitality.

In 2010 I won the Group Leisure Magazine Excellence Award for customer service, which was voted for by Group Organisers, which I consider the ultimate accolade. The company then went on to win the Group Travel Award for “Most Friendly Hotel Chain” three times in four years. The last company I worked for was also a finalist in the Group Travel Awards for “Best Small coach Fleet”.  The Alfa Leisureplex Group, where I am presently employed as Groups Sales Executive were voted as finalists in 3 categories at this year’s Group Travel Awards.

I also served on the Board of Trustee Directors for the Association of Group Travel Organisers from 2013-2016. AGTO is an independent organisation representing Group Travel Organisers and those who provide service to GTO’s

I offer a range of services to both Group Organisers and the Travel Trade including:

  • Site visits/reviews/group travel analysis – is the accommodation or attraction suitable for your clientele? Or are you an attraction or accommodation provider who would like to attract more groups?
  • Representation at events such as exhibitions, press launches etc  – no need to worry about being short staffed again at a busy show again!
