Abta is to run its regional business meetings for members virtually this autumn.

The association will share information designed to help businesses get through the ongoing Covid-19 crisis with 11 sessions between September 15 and October 29.

Sessions will cover topics such as refunds, government support schemes, chargebacks and Brexit.

A new forum will also take place that will consist of a panel discussion that looks at how the industry can work together to restore consumer confidence in travel.

Mark Tanzer, chief executive, said: “Members who have been to previous sessions know that Abta’s Regional Business Meetings are a valuable source of information and this particular programme is designed to best help Members through this troubled time.

“This autumn there will be much to discuss as we dissect the significant issues of the past few months and look forward to rebuilding confidence in travel and the new operating environment after the transition period for Brexit ends.

“The virtual nature of the programme this time should make the meetings even more accessible and I encourage as many Members as possible to sign up to the free events.”

Abta’s Regional Business Meetings are held in the spring and autumn. Places can be reserved by members at abta.com/regionalbusinessmeetings.
