Abta’s annual Travel Convention will go ahead as planned next month, chief executive Mark Tanzer has confirmed, despite the collapse of Thomas Cook.
Tanzer said the convention in Tokyo over 7-9 October would be the perfect forum to discuss the ramifications for the travel sector of the collapse of Thomas Cook.
“Next week, the annual Abta Travel Convention will be taking place,” said Tanzer.
“This has for many years been the place where the industry comes together to discuss the current business climate, and issues.
“No issue is more pressing than last week’s failure [of Thomas Cook], and I know that delegates at the convention will be very mindful of the anxiety and difficulties being experienced at home.”
