ABTA Travel Convention 2022

ABTA urges delegates to register for 2022 Travel Convention

ABTA has encouraged agents to register now for this year’s Travel Convention to take advantage of discounted early bird rates.

Taking place in Marrakech from 10-12 October, this year’s event will feature a programme of “high-level business sessions delivered by industry leaders and external experts”, according to the association.

There will also be a number of networking opportunities and half-day excursions in Marrakech.

Early bird fees are £600 for ABTA members and the first ABTA partner to register, and £700 for other partners and non-members. Delegate companions will need to pay a fee of £200.

ABTA said that a majority of delegates will stay at the five-star Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi, a 15-minute drive from Marrakech Menara Airport.

The same hotel will also host an ABTA members’ reception event on the evening of 10 October. The business sessions on 11 and 12 October will be held at the Palais des Congres Marrakech.

A ‘momentous occasion’ for ABTA

ABTA chief executive Mark Tanzer said: “This year’s convention will be the first hosted overseas since the start of the pandemic, so it is a momentous occasion for ABTA, our members and our partners.

“Delegates can currently take advantage of early bird fees, giving a chance to experience an excellent Travel Convention in stunning Marrakech at reduced rates.”

Speaking back in April, Tanzer added: “As ever, the event will provide a crucial opportunity for the industry to come together to discuss the future of travel and tourism and we’ll be releasing more details about the event content shortly.

“It will also be a fantastic opportunity to show travel professionals what this vibrant destination has to offer, from its rich cultural heritage, spectacular scenery, and ornate architecture, to warm hospitality and delicious cuisine.”

Moroccan National Tourism Office UK, Ireland and the Nordics director Jamal Kilito added: “ABTA and MNTO are working in close collaboration to make this year’s Travel Convention in Marrakech an exceptional success.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming all delegates to Morocco, the Kingdom of Light.”
