Event details

ABTA’s second annual Business Travel Law seminar will provide a comprehensive update on compliance and regulatory issues for the business travel sector. Attend this seminar for a timely update on Brexit, the new Package Travel Regulations and GDPR.

About the event

With new regulations affecting business travel, it is vital for Travel Management Companies and those working in business travel to understand these changes. As bleisure and sharing economy services become ever more present in business travel, it is important for TMCs to understand the potential liabilities of providing these services and how you can continue to fulfil your duty of care. 
In a post-GDPR world and with a number of high profile data breaches, data management is now of more strategic importance than ever. This seminar will provide an update on your obligations beyond GDPR and advice on preparing for and managing a data breach. 
Attend this annual seminar for an essential update from ABTA, legal experts on key legal changes impacting business travel and hear from other TMCs as to how they have adapted to the changes in the regulatory landscape.


  • Legal update including the relevance of the new Package Travel Regulations, ATOL and PSD2
  • Brexit preparation and understanding the changes that could impact business travel
  • The duty of care to keep customers and employees safe 
  • VAT-TOMS in business travel


Moderator: Susan Deer, Senior Solicitor, ABTA
