1 min read

ABTA’s Annual Conference will take place from 7-9 November 2018 at Protea Hotel Rustenburg Hunters Rest, 1.5 hours drive from Johannesburg.

According to ABTA founding member, Monique Swart, this year’s event will again raise the bar even higher in quality and overall experience.

“Our team is already working around the clock to ensure that this year’s event not only adds value, but also delivers up to date, relevant and practical sessions that will add invaluable benefit to companies, clients and travellers,” says Swart.

The line-up of the 2018 conference so far includes seven Educational Plenary Sessions; six Break-out Sessions; Buyers Closed Door Brand Showcase; Traditional SA Potjiekos Opening Night Cocktail Reception and a Boma Dinner Party Hosted by FCM Travel Solutions.

Swart adds that this year’s conference will start a bit earlier on Wednesday, 7 November from 12h00, in order to accommodate an earlier finish on Friday, 9 November after lunch.

Registrations are open and those wishing to attend are urged to register by 31 July to take advantage of the early bird rates for both conference fees and accommodation.

Updates and reminders about conference will be sent out to members over the coming months, however for additional information or assistance in the interim, please get in touch with the team at ABTA.
