For tour managers, GTL Sessions is a chance to come together at a stunning five-star resort to network and discuss important topics affecting touring life. For high-end hoteliers, luxury transport companies and top-tier travel companies, it’s your opportunity to have strategic meetings with our delegates to specify upcoming tours, make lasting connections and collaborate on a global scale.

GTL Sessions is presented by TPi Magazine, the leading B2B publication for the live touring industry. As an established name in the sector for over two decades, we pride ourselves on producing ‘on the ground’ coverage, speaking to the crew on the road who make some of the world’s biggest shows possible. 

GTL Sessions comprises four key elements: Speed+Sync meetings, Symposia speaker sessions, Sustenance breakouts, and Social celebrations. 

In an era where every business trip must be accounted for, the GTL Sessions pledge is simple: to provide an equal platform for hoteliers and transport companies to meet with tour managers and travel companies looking to book their services for upcoming tours.


Attendees from the hotel and luxury transport sector will have 20 x 20-minute meetings – pre-arranged – with an exclusively curated list of tour managers and travel companies, providing an opportunity to pitch services and specify upcoming tours for collaboration.

How do we curate Speed+Sync?

Delegates of GTL Sessions will be asked to provide proof of their upcoming tours and collaborations with artists to secure their place at the event. 

Suppliers pick a wish list of their Top 5 meetings, while also providing criteria for the remainder of their meetings.


Alongside the Speed+Sync networking sessions, GTL will feature thought-provoking content through a series of presentations, curated by TPi Magazine.

Covering a variety of subjects – from sustainable touring and the requirements of the modern touring artist to the importance of health and wellbeing on tour – the Symposia sessions provide an opportunity to gain exclusive insights on the sector’s hottest topics from well-respected industry experts.

“I am very much looking forward to the GTL Sessions this coming May! We’re often too busy working to take the time to reflect and reconnect with our peers. Tour Managers and Directors navigate unique challenges and varied needs, with high expectations to deliver. And we depend so much on our travel partners. What a treat to spend three days in a beautiful location while learning from and connecting with some of the best in the industry.”

‘I am delighted to host a GTL session in Greece next year, where we will explore how tour managers and travel partners can improve living and working conditions for those who tour. We know that touring can be rewarding and exhilarating in many ways but what is also true is that intensive touring can contribute to physical and psychological decline. Join me on this deep dive, where I present the findings of Touring and Mental Health: the Music Industry Manual, and we tap into the resourcefulness of tour managers, production managers and their teams, helping you to create healthier and happier tours.’

“I am looking forward to the GTL sessions, speaking about the experiences we have had on tour regarding sustainability. Also meeting up with my industry peers, to discuss further the future of sustainable touring. Listening to new ideas and proposals on how we can, as an industry attain the goals we need to become a leading force in sustainable forums and help to enlighten the fans and other industries to follow suit.”


Designed to allow you to escape, regenerate and rebuild, in beautiful, special surroundings. Conversations kick-started by our Speed+Sync and Symposia sessions will continue into these casual networking events interspersed throughout – be it a breakfast brainstorm, a catch-up over coffee or a light local lunch. We will also be focusing on health and wellbeing. 


Each evening, we will come together as friends to unwind and enjoy the spectacular surroundings. 

Designed to help solidify the long-lasting relationships formed during the event, Social Sessions may include organised dinners, hosted excursions or free time to share ideas, strike up new friendships and swap contacts with your fellow attendees.
