The 2022 Aito overseas conference is to be held in Braga, Portugal.
The Specialist Travel Association’s event will take place from November 17-20, 2022, hosted by Visit Portugal in collaboration with Porto and The North and Braga Council.
Aito said Portugal was chosen as the host destination due to its efforts in becoming one of the most sustainable destinations in Europe, noting its Tourism and Sustainable 2020-2023 action plan, and its accessibility.
The organisation said travel to Portugal is possible by aircraft, train or car, and promised to offset any carbon footprint emissions for delegates – tour operators, travel agents and business partners – who choose to fly.
The conference will feature guest speakers, industry panel discussions, breakout events and business sessions as well as several planned activities in the region.
Earlier this year, Braga was announced as the Best European Destination in 2021 by European Best Destinations.
