The Travel Network Group is to roll out a number of communications activities to help its members through trading changes taking place from January 2018.
The group’s Getting Ahead programme will feature sessions on changes to card charges, package travel regulations, general data protection regulation (GDPR), fraudulent gastric illness claims, cyber crime and Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice.
The first of four seminars will be hosted in Manchester on September 7.
Further seminars are planned on November 2, December 1 and March 5 next year. More than 50 members of the Travel Network Group have already signed up to attend.
Getting Ahead webinars will also be hosted on September 5 and 26 and October 5 to give members who are unable to attend the seminars in person the opportunity to get up fully briefed on changes in legislation and what they need to do to prepare for it.
Lisa Henning, group membership services director at The Travel Network Group, said: “We are committed to supporting our members through these changes. The seminars and webinars we are staging will give members the opportunity to be fully briefed on all the changes that are coming into practice from January, and understand what they need to do to be fully prepared. It is also an opportunity for us to give our members first-hand reassurance that we are here to provide support to them on these industry changes and to help them with the transition.”
The group’s Getting Ahead programme was launched in July and includes the creation of a booklet that was sent to all members of The Travel Network Group, setting out what changes were coming into force in January and how the group would provide assistance.
Henning added: “We see it as a fundamental part of our role to help our members navigate their way through all the changes successfully. It can be very daunting if you are a small agency with so many changes in legislation coming down the line. We want our members to know that we are always on-hand to help and the Getting Ahead programme is the start of this process.”
