The Collection

This beautiful bookazine series puts a spotlight on the best and latest trends in Spa & Wellness, Luxury, Africa, Earth and Cities. Each annual bookazine contains a complete A-Z guide on the best tours, spas, travel and accommodation, plus features and what’s new in the industry.

Events & Exhibitions

As well as its award-winning magazine, National Geographic Traveller is always getting involved in events, awards and exhibitions; from its travel writing and photography competitions to masterclasses and workshops, to its annual Reader Awards. This year the team hosted the all-new National Geographic Traveller Food Festival.

Food Festival

The inaugural National Geographic Traveller Food Festival was held from 20-21 July 2019 at the Business Design Centre, London and the next one will be on 18-19 July 2020.

The event offers an exciting and inspiring range of eating, drinking and learning experiences from across the globe.

Visitors can broaden their palates stall by stall on a world tour of the exhibitor space; get the lowdown on some of the world’s most exciting dishes via culinary masterclasses; and visit the theatres for a curated programme of events, from expert panel discussions to interviews with big-name food personalities and demonstrations from top chefs, which last time included Raymond Blanc, John Torode, Adam Handling and Andi Oliver.

The Masterclasses

After the huge success of the inaugural event, The Masterclasses — a one-day event focused on Travel Writing and Photography Masterclasses — will return in 2020, set to build on the sell-out popularity of last year’s sessions.

This day of intensive in-depth courses, led by the magazine’s senior editors, renowned contributors and brand ambassadors, provides the consumer with stimulating workshops and lectures that illuminate the art of written and visual storytelling. For the curious travel writer and avid photographer, this is an opportunity to immerse themselves in a day of inspiration and practical instruction from some of the industry’s leading experts.

Reader Awards

The annual National Geographic Traveller Reader Awards are our readers’ chance to have their say, voting for their favourite destinations, airlines and more.
