Kuoni to host in-store talks by BBC TV presenter Simon Reeves

Tue, 10 Apr 2012 09:44:19 EST

Kuoni has announced that BBC TV presenter Simon Reeve (Equator, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn) will make a series of exclusive appearances at Kuoni stores and partnership stores across the UK, starting in Bath on Tuesday 1st May. He will be talking about his travels and latest epic adventure series 'Indian Ocean', which starts on BBC 2 on Sunday nights from 22 April 2012.

Local residents are invited to join with Kuoni and put their own questions to Simon. They can share their travel tales over a glass of Champagne and some canapés, and have a chance to win their own Indian Ocean holiday.

The evenings will be hosted by luxury holidays provider Kuoni (or their partnership stores), and guests will be able to hear the inside story of Simon's most epic adventure yet: his travels around the perimeter of the Indian Ocean, a journey which sees him heading up the east coast of Africa, around India and back down the western coast of Indonesia to SW Australia.  

Simon's tour will take him to Kuoni stores in Liverpool, Leeds, Canterbury, London, Guildford,  Kingston, Cambridge and Milton Keynes, plus partnership stores in Plymouth, Bath and Newcastle.

Local residents are invited to meet Simon by contacting their local Kuoni store (or Kuoni partnership store)  or by visiting www.kuoni.co.uk/simonreeve to put their names forward for complimentary tickets for the evening (registration will close 10 days before the event date).  

A limited number of tickets are available and names and addresses received will be put into a free prize draw to win two tickets to the event. There will also be the chance to win a holiday to the five-star Oberoi, Mauritius, with the draw taking place in June. There will be signed copies of Simon's travel books as runner up prizes. A wide selection of enticing travel offers will also be available to many of the countries that feature in 'Indian Ocean', and Kuoni's Personal Travel Experts will be on hand to answer any travel questions.

Derek Jones, Kuoni's Managing Director, said: "We are thrilled to have Simon visit our store and to invite the public to come and enjoy some warm hospitality whilst being enthralled by Simon's adventures. Kuoni, which was founded in 1906, has always been a pioneering travel brand opening up new and exotic holiday destinations over the decades, so we like the idea of being able to rub shoulders with Simon, who is rapidly becoming one of the most widely travelled men in the country."
