Franchise conference axed by Advantage

ADVANTAGE Travel Centres has axed its plan to hold a separate conference for members which are part of the Airtours franchise.

The news emerged as Advantage revealed that its 2000 conference will be held in Tunisia, after the destination beat off competition from Malta.

Managing director Ron Muir said instead of a separate event for franchise members, it will instead hold day-long meetings to discuss pressing issues. "We held a meeting with them at the Stakis Hotel in July and will do that whenever the need arises," said Muir. "I would be very surprised if a separate conference is held."

The 2000 conference will be held in Hammamet from May 4-8.

It will use three hotels - the five-star Royal Azur, four-star Sol Azur and the three-star Bel Azur - all of which are within easy walking distance of the 700-capacity conference hall.

Muir said: "It was a close call and I think we shall probably choose Malta for the 2001 conference. By then it should have better facilities."
