The British Airways chairman and Confederation of British Industry president Martin Broughton will be this year’s keynote speaker at ABTA‘s Travel Convention.

Broughton’s session will open the conference which is being themed around innovation. The speech is expected to set the tone for the rest of the event which is being held in Gran Canaria in October.

It is also hoped he will give delegates ideas on reputation, risk and investment as well as the future of British business and the pressures facing the UK’s national airline.
