Glamorous globe-trotting reality star Ferne McCann will be in Belfast on Friday January 15 to officially open the 2016 Holiday World Show in its new location at the Titanic Exhibition Centre in downtown Belfast.

The sunny-natured celeb recently charmed television audiences as well as snakes during three eventful weeks in the Aussie jungle for ‘I’m A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here’.  Her adventures Down Under have renewed her taste for travel and the TOWIE star plans to pick up some holiday tips when she visits the Belfast show.

She will be in good company as thousands flock to Northern Ireland’s favourite celebration of travel and tourism to check out destinations at home and abroad and capture some canny price comparisons as they snap up vacation bargains.

Our new venue has inspired us to add still more sparkle to the event and visitors can expect a fun-filled experience that’s sure to get them into holiday mood.

“Value is very much a focus for 2016 and beyond and there are some fantastic offers of discounted prices and added value, together with superb show-only deals.  This is the perfect way to ensure you squeeze best possible value from your holiday pound … but, if money is no object, you’ll also find high end luxury to take your breath away!   Whether you’re booking or browsing, dealing or dreaming, there’s no better way to banish the Winter blues”
