Brexit and PTRs focus of Abta regional business meetings

Abta’s forthcoming regional business meetings will focus on Brexit and the new Package Travel Regulations, and come amid what boss Mark Tanzer has described as a “critical time” for the UK travel sector.

Brexit and PTRs focus of Abta regional business meetings

The association’s latest meeting programme will take place between March and April and is free for members to attend, offering an opportunity to hear from Abta experts on the latest industry developments.

The agenda includes all the latest likely effects of Brexit on members and updates on Abta’s lobbying efforts.

Other topics include the PTRs and Atol Standard Terms and multi-contract packages, as well as a focus on business travel sales and ancillary sales.

There will be additional sessions on tax, including the government’s Making Tax Digital initiative which requires companies with a taxable turnover of more than £85,000 to keep certain records digital.

Abta will also be providing updates on its work to support bookings, including consumer campaigns and its travel trends report, while the sessions will provide opportunities for members to network.

Abta chief executive Mark Tanzer said: “The travel industry never stands still, and the regional business meetings are a great way for Abta to update members on our insights and intelligence on the latest developments.

“The meetings are very much a two-way conversation – a chance to hear directly from Abta’s experts about key topics as well as a chance to ask questions and provide feedback about what is going on in members’ businesses or the industry locally.

“These meetings come at a critical time for the UK and the travel industry, and we look forward to welcoming members at the events.”

The meetings are held twice a year in 11 locations nationwide. Places are free for Abta members but must be booked in advance.
