Event details

ABTA’s two-day Travel Marketing Conference returns for 2022, combining inspirational case studies, valuable insight and interactive panel discussions. 

Designed for advanced level travel marketing professionals, the event will bring together key names in the travel industry and senior marketing experts.

It will be held at News UK’s ‘The News Building’ in central London, home to leading news and media brands including The Sun, The Times, The Sunday Times.

About the event

With 61% of people saying that they plan to travel abroad in the next year* and the emergence of the ‘catch-up consumer’, the pent up demand for travel is clear. 30% of consumers are also more likely to book with a travel professional now than before the pandemic to make up for the trips missed and ensure they can book and travel with confidence. 

In the competitive and uncertain travel market, your brand is your biggest asset. Successful travel marketing tells the story of your brand in a way that appeals to your target audiences and allows for consumer confidence in your products and services.  

As they navigate the complicated travel landscape, the way that customers are finding and engaging with brands is evolving – they are interacting on new channels and demonstrating new behaviours and demands including the need for flexible policies. The challenge is to keep up to date with the latest trends in TV, audio, digital, print and social media advertising and to implement strategies that work for your brand.

You will hear from a broad range of speakers who will discuss and debate different trends and strategies around instilling consumer confidence and remaining agile, including which channels they use and why. You will learn how to reach your customers at the right time, via the right channels, with the right messages. 

Debate and discuss key topics affecting travel marketers, including customer trust and how to meet the demand for authenticity amongst brands.
