ABTA has launched a new programme of activity to engage with members.

The new programme will have two main elements. The first will be a free ABTA-hosted event taking place once a year in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and each of the regions in England. 

The sessions have evolved from the previous regional meetings’ format and are much more of a two-way exchange, with only short and informal updates from ABTA. The emphasis is on knowledge exchange between members and ABTA, as well as networking with industry colleagues in their area, all with the aim of helping members run their business. 

Dates to follow.

Sponsorship and promotional opportunities are also available.

ABTA will be doing more to get involved in activities where members are already gathering locally by attending industry roadshows, events and networking.

ABTA also runs a monthly video conference call (second Tuesday of each month) which is open to all members to attend and submit questions. 

Please email engagement@abta.co.uk for more information.
