Abta is to host a one-day seminar on future skills in the travel and tourism industry next month.

The event will take place at the association’s offices in London on Wednesday, June 19, and will focus on areas including potential skills gaps, future travel roles and how companies should be approaching recruitment and training.

Speakers will include John Cope, head of education and skills policy for the Confederation of British Industry, and Kate Nicholls, chief executive of UKHospitality and head of the Tourism Sector Deal recruitment workstream.

Travel Weekly is official trade media partner for the event.

Vicki Wolf, Abta education partnerships manager and moderator, said: “This is the third year Abta has hosted the Future Skills In Travel & Tourism seminar and I look forward to seeing as many of our education partners and members attend as possible.

“It promises to be another informative and engaging forum for delegates to hear from education providers and employers across the industry and will provide the opportunity to discuss ways to develop a sustainable pipeline of talent for the future.”
