LONDON, June 7, 2011 -

Travel trade media brand TTG has relaunched with a new magazine, a
rebranded new website and a new strapline 'The Business of Selling Travel' -
with the ambitious aim of making itself relevant to every travel seller in
the UK.

Backed by parent company UBM, TTG (Travel Trade Gazette) becomes one of
few B2B magazines to get serious investment behind it in 2011, thanks to the
nature of a business where many of its core readers - travel agents - do not
have access to the internet during the working day.

Switching away from a news-led cover to a picture-led cover for the first
time in its 58 year history, TTG has a new range of print content aiming to
appeal to people selling travel at every level - travel agents, call-centre
staff, online experts - as well as tour operators, and other businesses
within travel.

At the same time its new website, developed by B2B online
specialists Abacus eMedia, offers a range of business-building and
informative content tailored for the market - ranging from fast-moving news
to an innovative digital travel brochure showcase. Key features on the site

- TTG TV, a video service developed in partnership with Exposure 4

- TTG Knowledge, web-based training courses for travel sellers developed
by Online Travel Training

- TTG Travel Pro - a paid-for series of destination guides which travel
sellers can download, adapt and email to their own customers.

Daniel Pearce, editor of TTG, said: "Months of research with travel
sellers and advertisers has seen TTG draw up a new perspective on the
business of selling travel. And a strategy that pushes across every part of
our portfolio: print, website, mobile, virtual events, social media,
face-to-face events and bespoke solutions for the industry.

"Travel agents remain our core audience - from front desk travel sellers
looking to grow their careers to managers looking to grow their business -
but in an industry that is as broad as travel it would be foolish not for us
to broaden our appeal. We look forward to further developments in the months
to come."
