Credit card fraud on agenda at ABTA meetings

New measures to stamp out credit card fraud will be discussed at ABTA's latest programme of Regional Business Meetings.

The autumn meetings, taking place between September and December, are free for members and will give them the chance to hear directly from ABTA's experts on the latest industry developments, trends and policy updates.

Experts will discuss the implications for businesses following the latest update to the Payment Services Directive, which have seen the introduction of enhanced fraud checks through a two-stage verification process when transactions are made.

ABTA will also provide an update on its new independent research on consumer confidence in ABTA and other travel brands.

"With the ever-changing political and regulatory landscape our upcoming Regional Business Meetings come at a critical time and will provide our members with an update on industry issues, as well as an overview of the latest Payment Services Directive update," said ABTA chief executive Mark Tanzer.

"The meetings give our members the chance to ask ABTA's experts any questions they may have about their business or the industry more broadly and we look forward to welcoming them at the events."

The Regional Business Meetings are held twice a year - autumn and spring - in 11 locations across the country. The dates for the autumn meetings are as follows:

18 September - South Wales
1 October - North West
16 October - Eastern
22 October - Yorkshire & North Midlands
23 October - Northern Ireland
29 October - Scotland
