Travel agent consortium Advantage has announced the details for its 2008 conference.

The event will be held in the Spanish town of Sitges near Barcelona on September 26 to 28 and is expected to attract around 600 members.

The announcement comes as Advantage remains a member of super-consortium Triton even though it has pulled out of the merger with the Global Travel Group and Worldchoice.

Advantage chief executive John McEwan said: “With the conference a year away, we are planning well ahead to give us plenty of time to organise three hugely worthwhile days for all our delegates.

“I am confident this conference will become the benchmark in quality for the travel industry.”
