ABTA has announced the date for this year’s travel trade annual Convention, but nothing more, in a move to ensure it is in people’s diary.
This year’s Convention will take place on 13 October and will be the first-ever blended travel Convention – offering ABTA’s members and the wider travel industry the option to attend the event in-person or online.
The in-person event will be in London and will include a full day of business sessions, refreshment breaks, lunch and a post-event reception.
The online package will include access to the main stage sessions, live as they happen. It will also include a digital library of additional content and online networking.
Whether attending in person or online, the one-day event will provide time for delegates to take stock, as well as to be inspired as we look ahead to what is next for international travel.
Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA – The Travel Association, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer people the choice as to whether they attend the travel Convention in person or online this year. The opportunity to network and speak to people face to face has been sorely missed and, as usual, will be at the heart of the Convention, along with keynote sessions from leaders in the industry.”
The 2022 ABTA Travel Convention will take place in Marrakech (Morocco) as previously announced.
Further details of the event, including how to register to attend, will be announced in due course.
