Further speakers have been announced for this year’s Travel Convention.
James McClure, general manager, Northern Europe, Airbnb and Dominic Tucker, head of sales UK&I, Norwegian and Helen Caron, distribution and cruise director, TUI UK & Ireland joining the line-up.
McClure, Tucker and Caron will discuss their views on the next chapter for their sectors; the challenges they face; the competitive response to their growth, the post-Brexit landscape and much more.
Following media interest earlier this month in anti-tourism protests in Barcelona and the Balearics and the impact of new business models on tourism more generally, this will also be discussed.
This year’s Travel Convention will take place in The Azores from 9-11 October on the island of São Miguel
Mark Tanzer, ABTA chief executive, said: “The Convention provides an opportunity for the industry to come together and debate current issues as well as looking ahead to the future. I am delighted to welcome all of our speakers and look forward to some interesting debates. I would encourage anyone attending the Convention to ensure they spend some time exploring the beautiful island of São Miguel and to take advantage of the excursions on offer.”
