ABTA leads the way in taking the industry’s case to Government on many important travel and tourism issues. The objective of our Travel Matters programme is to provide our Members and leading industry stakeholders with the latest information, as well as a forum for debate, on the key policy matters and current issues affecting travel.
Travel Matters will provide a unique opportunity to hear from – and interact with – an outstanding line-up of speakers from Government and the industry, who we will challenge on a number of subjects including the value of outbound and inbound travel and what drives the UK’s tourism mix; connectivity, aviation strategy, Air Passenger Duty and much more. There will also be an opportunity to address the hottest topics affecting travel at the time.
