Advantage Travel Centres closed its 2009 conference by announcing that next year’s event will be held from May 21-23 in Lucerne, Switzerland.

Taking place at the KKL Conference Centre in the city, the conference will be supported by Switzerland Tourism and Lucerne Tourism.

In announcing the 2010 conference venue, Advantage Travel Centres chief executive John McEwan said: “We took the decision to hold this year’s conference in the UK because of the economic situation. But in principle we are committed to overseas conferences. As the events are focussed on leisure travel and business travel members it is important to find a destination that is relevant to both as well as trying to select somewhere that is not on the traditional travel conference circuit.Lucerne is not only a great holiday destination but also an important business centre.”

Members and business partners who would like to advance register for the conference should contact Nicky Appleby at Advantage Travel Centres on 020 7324 3934 or
