Extra Abta meetings to help members with grants and Brexit

Abta will host additional virtual meetings in January and February to help members with issues such as lockdown grants and the implications of the Brexit trade deal.

There will be five regional business meetings hosted by Abta experts to support members through the current crisis.

As well as an update on government schemes available to support the sector, there will be news about the association’s lobbying work, particularly around the need for tailored financial support for the travel industry.

Following the Brexit trade deal, other matters will include the legal status of seasonal workers and travellers’ ability to access healthcare in the continent.

The five regional business meetings are usually held twice a year, in spring and autumn, but the Covid crisis means Abta will hold these extra sessions.

Mark Tanzer, Abta chief executive, said: “At a time when things seem to be changing by the minute, it is vital that we come together to discuss the issues that matter to us most, both at a regional and a national level.

“This is a free event, and a chance to have a two-way conversation, ask any questions, give feedback and hear from Abta’s experts on key topics.”

The dates for the meetings are:
Northern Ireland: January 19
London, East, South: January 22
Scotland: January 26
North West, South West, South Wales: January 29
North East, Midlands, Yorkshire & North Midlands: February 2
