Registration has officially opened for this year’s ABTA Travel Convention, with delegates encouraged to register now and save by taking advantage of discounted Early Bird rates.

This year’s event will take place from 7-9 October in Costa Navarino, Messinia, in the southwest Peloponnese in Greece.

As the UK travel industry’s flagship event, ABTA’s annual Travel Convention provides senior travel professionals with plenty of opportunities for networking, two days of thought-provoking business sessions, and the chance to explore the host destination through optional excursions.

When registering for this year’s event, delegates can choose to stay at either The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort or The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino. Both are five-star hotels within the resort of Navarino Dunes, which also boasts more than 20 restaurants and bars, a 4,000m² spa and thalassotherapy centre, plus various leisure and sports facilities.

The business sessions will be held at the House of Events, the resort’s dedicated Convention Centre.

Available until mid-July, Early Bird rates are priced at £695 for ABTA members and first ABTA Partner to register, and £795 for additional ABTA Partners and other delegates. There is a companion fee of £230 for those not attending as delegates.

The 2024 Travel Convention is supported by Lead Partner easyJet holidays, plus headline partners Intrepid Travel and Global.

Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive at ABTA – The Travel Association said: “Our annual Travel Convention is always a fantastic event, providing the ideal forum for industry colleagues to connect, do business and look ahead to the future of our sector.

“We’re very much looking forward to returning to Greece this year, which continues to grow in popularity among UK holidaymakers. Messinia is one of the country’s most captivating regions, so I’m sure that delegates will enjoy learning more about the breadth of experiences on offer.

“I’d encourage delegates to make sure they register by mid-July so they can take advantage of our highly-competitive Early Bird rates.”

Garry Wilson, easyJet holidays CEO, said: “With the ABTA Convention as the flagship event for travel and tourism, we’re incredibly excited to be Lead Partner for a second year, supporting ABTA in delivering a key event which always offers fantastic insight, brilliant business sessions and an unmissable outlook for the year ahead for our industry.”
