Hi all...

I trust you are all well?  Hopefully, the winter is now behind us.   This newsletter is jam packed with prizes and educational opportunities and, of course, lots of information from our associates.

SPAA are busy finalising details for our first STAR (Scottish Travel Agents Road Show) event of the year and I really hope to meet as many of you as possible.  If you are able to come along to The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Edinburgh on Thursday 26 March, please emailjhogarth@spaa.org to register your place.  It promises to be a great evening with lots of opportunities to network and we have some amazing prizes up for grabs such as flights to Dubai...
