Catch-Up with RDA and EACT Strategic Partners CTA, CPT and ETOA in Limehouse London

RDA Strategic Partnerships are a major benefit of RDA membership when they are actively lived. RDA CEO Dieter Gauf and RDA Market Representative for the UK, Ireland & the Commonwealth, Dr. Patrick Patridge took advantage of their recent ETOA GEM 2016 visit to London to catch-up with EACT partner federation leaders including Chris Wales of the Coach Tourism Association (CTA), Jay Munro-Michell of the European Tour Operators Association (ETOA) and Stephen Smith of the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT UK). News updates and information about industry, federation and RDA Exposition developments were exchanged. The subject of more UK coach operators attending the RDA-Expositions in 2017 was also discussed.

The venue chosen for the informal meeting is one of the oldest pubic houses in London, “The Grapes” in Narrow Street in Limehouse – a wonderful, cosy, friendly and atmospheric pub with great food situated on the banks of the River Thames not far from Canary Wharf. Charles Dickens was a patron, making reference to the pub in his novel 'Our Mutual Friend'.  Oscar Wilde reputedly featured the pub in his Gothic novel, “Dorian Gray”.
