Delegates wanting to attend for this year’s Abta Travel Convention in Tokyo are being encouraged to book their places by end of the month.

The registration fee of £665 for members and partners for the event in Japan will rise after July 31.

Under the theme of a ‘Brave New World’, the autumn event will explore how factors such as globalisation, technology, environmental concerns and increasing competition are influencing holiday choices – and how the industry can adapt to these changes.

The Japan National Tourism Organisation, Japan Association of Travel Agents, All Nippon Airways and Prince Hotels & Resorts are  host partners for the convention on October 7-9.

Delegates will stay at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa in Tokyo, with direct access to Haneda international airport, Shinkansen (Bullet Train) rail lines and only a few minutes’ walk from Shinagawa Station.

Attendees will be able to fly either direct or indirectly to the Japanese capital from a number of UK airports on ANA flights.

A number of free pre and post-convention tours have been organised by the JNTO.

Abta chief executive Mark Tanzer said: “I look forward to welcoming delegates to vibrant Tokyo, and would encourage those who haven’t registered yet to take advantage of the standard registration fees over the next month.

“As an innovation leader, Japan has been introducing the world to cutting-edge products and ideas for years, and this year’s convention offers us the unique chance to be inspired by this new setting, culture and way of thinking.

“As ever, it also offers a fantastic opportunity for the industry to come together to reflect on events and learnings from the past year and to look ahead to the next chapter.”
