Some 250 member and supplier delegates are gathering in the Nation’s Capital for Magellan Travel Group’s Annual Conference.

The conference opened on Wednesday night 29 October 2014 with a cocktail event at The National Portrait Gallery.

“Our conferences are highly interactive” said Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Macfarlane.

“We are a member driven Group so want to talk about the issues of interest and influence on their businesses. I think that’s why we always get such a high participation rate.”

“It’s also our chance to share our plans for the future with members and hear their views, and as co-owners of the Group they deserve complete transparency of the financial results – income, costs and most importantly, profit for our members”.
