Event details

ABTA’s annual Travel Regulations conference returns on 30 November. The event is a chance for the travel industry to take stock after a summer of ongoing difficulties for travel companies following the COVID-19 pandemic and wider global and domestic challenges and to look ahead to changes expected to the major regulations governing the travel industry. 


Further information, including speakers will be announced in due course.

About the event

Explore the practical lessons learnt as the world begins to adapt to the realities of living with COVID-19, the UK travel industry and its customers come to grips with the post-EU position, and all businesses face an uncertain economic future. 

ABTA’s practical one-day conference will consider the impact that industry regulations have on your business model. Amidst proposals to changes to the ATOL scheme, Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations, and consumer rights this is the chance to question the experts and raise any issues you are facing and to address common challenges relating to the implementation of travel regulation.

Hear from industry experts and discuss with peers what the future of financial protection could hold for travel businesses. Learn what you can be doing to prepare for possible changes and the practicalities of doing so. 

Understand proposals to reform consumer rights under the PTRs and wider legislation.  

Get practical advice from travel legal experts on topics including risk management, travel company liability, recent case law and what this might all mean for your business in future.  

Hear directly from the regulators as well as getting practical guidance from industry experts.
