ABTA to focus on grants and Brexit in regional meetings

Meetings will be held from January 19 to February 2

ABTA will focus on grant funding, the Brexit trade deal and Covid-19 lobbying at its next round of January regional meetings.

The sessions, which start on January 19, will be held virtually. Members are encouraged to book their place.

Mark Tanzer, chief executive of ABTA, said: “At a time when things seem to be changing by the minute, it is vital that we come together to discuss the issues that matter to us most, both at a regional and a national level. This is a free event, and a chance to have a two-way conversation, ask any questions, give feedback and hear from ABTA’s experts on key topics. We encourage Members to register their place to hear the most up to date information and insight from ABTA’s experts.”

Other matters to be discussed will be changes that may affect businesses following Brexit – such as the legal status of seasonal workers and traveller’s ability to access healthcare in the continent.

There will also be updates from the financial protection and communication teams.

ABTA Members must book to reserve their free place, by registering at: abta.com/regionalbusinessmeetings.

The dates for the Meetings are as follows:

Northern Ireland 19 January
London, East, South 22 January
Scotland 26 January
North West, South West, South Wales 29 January
North East, Midlands, Yorkshire & North Midlands 2 February
