ILTSA 66th AGM 2019, Grange over Sands, Cumbria

We are delighted to confirm that the Netherwood Hotel and Spa, Grange Over Sands (Cumbria LA11 6ET) has been booked for the 66th AGM to be held 19th to 21st May 2019.

Old world charm, modern facilities & comfort

The Netherwood is a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian mansion offering the perfect combination of old world charm and all the essential modern facilities and comforts.

The Spa facilities have recently been upgraded in a major refurbishment.

Perfectly situated amidst 15 acres of woodland and landscaped gardens and also blessed with breath-taking views across Morecambe Bay.

It is easily accessible being only 30 minutes from the M6 and also walking distance from Grange Over Sands railway station with trains to Preston and Manchester for those wishing to travel by train.

Getting the best deal for members

We are finding it increasingly difficult to find hotels willing to take on the AGM at the prices we are willing to pay and so we chose to be flexible on our dates to be able to negotiate a good price from the Netherwood.

Our itinerary

So our itinerary looks like this…

  • Sunday 19th May – Arrive at the Hotel – Evening Meal with half bottle of wine
  • Monday 20th May – Day Trip – yet to be planned – Evening Meal with half bottle of wine
  • Tuesday 21st May – AGM as usual in the morning followed by a buffet lunch for all.
  • Tuesday 21st May – Evening Meal with half bottle of wine.
  • The Tuesday stay is optional as quite a few people may travel back after the buffet lunch.

We know this is a change from what has happened over the past few years but there are a number of benefits, in addition to hotel availability and price, including:

  • Travelling on the Sunday would be easier than a week day
  • More people hopefully attend the Day Trip on the Monday
  • Possibly work out cheaper as only staying 2 nights instead of 3

Reduced price compared to previous years

As we discussed at this years meeting we have again cut the price of the AGM and social get together to £130 (trips excluded) for members and guests booking before the end of February 2019.

This price will be on a first come basis as we have only been given a minimum number of rooms at this price to be confirmed by the end of February, once we reach this date the cost will revert to £160.

The price includes the lunch for the Tuesday after the AGM and includes partners.

Book early for lowest price

The sooner you can confirm your place the better your chances of getting it at the lower price. If you would like to stay the additional Tuesday night a price of £65 for DBB will apply per person or £80 if you book after the end of February.

To confirm your place early a non refundable deposit of £50 per person will be required by the end of February 2019.

Not been before?

If you have never been, make this the first time and take advantage of the excellent price. It’s a great way to catch up with colleagues and make new friends within your industry.

AGM attendance only

For any member who just wishes to attend the AGM, this is free, but we do ask that you notify us you will be attending. If you stay for lunch there will be a nominal fee of £20 to cover the cost.

 

 

More details of the day trip on the Monday will be sent out once it has been finalised.
