ABTA opens registrations for Travel Convention 2019

Registration for The Travel Convention is now open, with this year’s event taking place in Tokyo, Japan from October 7-9.

The Convention will be held at the Prince Hotels & Resorts, Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa, which is directly connected to the International Convention Center Pamir, where the business sessions will take place. All delegates will stay at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa, which is centrally located in Tokyo with direct access to Haneda International Airport, Shinkansen (bullet train) rail lines and only a few minutes’ walk from Shinagawa Station – one of the largest in Tokyo.

The Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO), Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA), ANA - All Nippon Airways, which is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its London-Tokyo route this year, and Prince Hotels & Resorts will be the Host Partners for the convention.

The convention is happening during the Rugby World Cup, with matches taking place throughout Japan, and the Japanese Grand Prix, which is being held in Suzuka – providing extra opportunities for delegates to explore Japan’s regions and see more of what the country has to offer. 

The JNTO will be operating a series of complimentary pre and post-convention tours for ABTA member delegates to showcase Japan outside of Tokyo. The limited spaces can be applied for via the post-registration confirmation link, and are subject to conditions outlined in the application process.

There are a range of ‘Explore Japan’ Partners offering special pre and post-convention tours for delegates, all of whom are ABTA members that operate in Japan. 

This year, tour operators Gold Medal, Travel 2, Holiday Extras, Cosmos and Royal Caribbean International will be hosting 55 UK travel agents at the convention – providing an opportunity for agents to hear about the latest developments within the industry and network with colleagues.

The standard registration fee is available to delegates until the end of July. Delegates will be able to travel directly and indirectly to Tokyo from a number of UK airports on services operated by ANA – All Nippon Airways, with direct flights starting from £599. 

Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA – The Travel Association, said: “Japan is set to be a fantastic Convention and we look forward to hosting delegates in the vibrant setting of Tokyo, providing a programme of thought-provoking and insightful business sessions as well as networking opportunities amongst travel industry colleagues.

“It’s also a great opportunity to show travel professionals all that Japan has to offer – from its incredible cuisine, beautiful landscapes and traditional architecture to its super speed trains and illuminated skyscrapers. With a number of international sporting events also taking place over the next couple of years, now is the perfect time to visit and we encourage delegates to book as soon as they can.”
