ABTA members urged to sign up now for Tokyo Convention

ABTA is encouraging delegates to sign up before the end of July for this year's Travel Convention in Tokyo, before the registration fee goes up.

Members and partners who register before July 31 will pay £665. After this date, it rises to £815.

Around 350 delegates have already signed up for the event, which takes place from 7 to 9 October 2019 with the theme, a 'Brave New World'.

Meanwhile, the criteria for the Japan National Tourism Organisation's complimentary pre and post-convention tours has been expanded so that delegates who include posting on social media and issue a dedicated e-newsletter can apply.

Delegates can apply via the Tours/Excursions section of the website, and are subject to conditions outlined in the application process.

The latest headline partner to be announced is Spendology, an online travel currency sales service where companies can use their own branding, control their exchange rates and set their margins.

The company joins Avis Budget Group, Global, The Media & Entertainment Group, InsideJapan Tours and Royal Caribbean International.

All delegates will stay at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa and will be able to travel directly and indirectly to Tokyo from a number of UK airports on services operated by ANA - All Nippon Airways.

The full delegate attendee list is available via the Travel Convention website.
