Abta has confirmed its annual conference will again take place virtually this year, while Marrakech will host the 2022 Travel Convention.
Abta said it “recognised that the travel and tourism sector will be continuing to deal with the impact of coronavirus” when the convention is due to take place in the week beginning 11 October.
The 2022 Travel Convention will take place in Morocco next spring “when the recovery of the sector from the pandemic should be more advanced”.
Abta chief executive Mark Tanzer said: “The pandemic and its impact on travel have both continued for longer than most people originally thought. We are eager to return to our usual convention format overseas, but we have to recognise the economic environment the industry continues to work in.
“Making the decision now allows delegates and sponsors to plan accordingly.”
