ABTA announces plans for 2021 and 2022 Travel Conventions

ABTA has announced plans for its 2021 Travel Convention, and confirmed that Marrakech, Morocco will host the 2022 Travel Convention.

Recognising that the travel and tourism sector will be continuing to deal with the impact of coronavirus, this year's Convention will repeat the successful online format of the 2020 Convention, taking place in the week beginning 11 October 2021.

The 2022 Travel Convention will take place in Morocco next spring, allowing the travel industry to experience Marrakech, at a time when the recovery of the tourism sector from the pandemic should be more advanced.

ABTA Chief Executive, Mark Tanzer, said: "The pandemic, and its impact on travel, have both continued for longer than most people originally thought.  We are eager to return to our usual Convention format overseas, but we have to recognise the economic environment the industry continues to work in.  Making the decision now allows delegates and sponsors to plan accordingly."

"Feedback on last year's extended reality Convention was overwhelmingly positive, and I am confident that this year's event will be equally engaging and stimulating. At the same time, we look forward to the industry being able to gather in the vibrant city of Marrakech in Spring 2022, hosted by our friends, the Moroccan National Tourist Office."

Further details of both events will be revealed in due course.
