AITO operators and AITO Specialist Travel Agents have announced that its joint overseas conference will take in Córdoba in Spain from June 11-14.
This year will also mark the return of a combined conference format involving all members of the AITO family: AITO tour operators, agents and affiliates.
Sponsored by the Córdoba Tourist Board, Andalucía Tourist Board and the Spanish Tourist Board, the joint conference will see the two organisations come together to engender greater links between AITO and AITO Agents.
Chairman of AITO, Derek Moore, said: “This will be the first joint conference for three years, with the last one being in Madeira, Portugal, in 2012. At the end of last year, we quizzed all AITO members as to whether they would prefer a combined tour operator and travel agent overseas conference, and the majority replied 'yes'.
“Córdoba is an unspoilt gem of a city, often overlooked, with an historic past steeped in the lore of Arabia, but just a couple of hours' flying time from the UK. We wanted somewhere exotically redolent of a distant culture and somewhere that is not an obvious destination; somewhere with a lot to offer but not as well-known as its near neighbours. We think we have found all these qualities in Córdoba.
Chairman of AITO Agents, Gemma Antrobus, said: "I am extremely excited that we shall be travelling to Córdoba for the AITO and AITO Agents’ joint conference this summer. Most of the conference will be situated within the old town, which will not only add an element of extra interest, but will also aid all delegates in terms of networking during the conference."
