ABTA Morocco Convention postponed

Association will instead hold UK based event

ABTA has postponed the 2020 Travel Convention, which was due to be held in Morocco.

It will instead hold a UK based Travel Convention at a similar time of year.

The event will be held in Morocco in 2021.

ABTA Chief Executive, Mark Tanzer, said:“We are very disappointed to have to postpone this year’s planned Convention in Marrakech, but the current circumstances left us with little choice. I am delighted that the Moroccan National Tourism Office has confirmed its support for hosting the event in October 2021, and I have no doubt that the Convention then will be a great success for our hosts, our delegates and our headline partners.

Instead, this year we’ll host an industry event that will combine the annual Travel Matters policy event, normally held in June, with a Convention focusing particularly on issues and opportunities as the industry rebuilds from the effects of the CoVid-19 pandemic.”
