The Association of Touring and Adventure Suppliers will hold online networking sessions and training webinars as part of its first Touring and Adventure Month in April.

The month-long initiative aims to promote the sector among agents and consumers and highlight the extensive range of holidays available.

There will be two networking sessions offering one-to-one appointments for Atas members to meet travel agents – the first will be between 9am and 1pm on April 20, and the second will take place from 1pm-5pm on April 21.

Meanwhile, the Touring & Adventure Month will see weekly webinars giving Atas tour operator members the chance to provide agents with short product updates and details of the latest offers.

Each webinar will last 45 minutes and will feature four tour operator members. They will start at 10am on April 7, 13, 23 and 28.

Claire Brighton (pictured), Atas account director, said: “These online sessions will be an ideal way for agents to catch up with key tour operator contacts as the travel industry emerges from restrictions.

“We have been hearing very positive news from operators and agencies about consumers booking touring and adventure holidays, now that we have a post-lockdown roadmap from the government.

“Consumers have more questions than ever before about the holidays they’re planning, so it’s vital that agents have the latest facts and selling tips in order to capitalise on the huge pent-up demand.

“We’re look forward to lots of productive networking sessions and informative webinars next month.”
