Atas to host virtual networking afternoon for agents

The Association of Touring and Adventure Suppliers has organised a virtual networking afternoon for agents to meet key operators in the sector.

The one-to-one meetings will suit a range of agents – from those who are new to the touring and adventure sector to staff who are already experienced and knowledgeable.

Agents will be able to network with representatives from nine Atas operator members, to learn about new products, trends in the market and sales tips.

The operators cover a wide range of holidays in the touring and adventure market and are: AAT Kings; Abercrombie & Kent/Cox & Kings; Cosmos; Hurtigruten; Insight Vacations; Intrepid; Newmarket Holidays; Trafalgar; and Wendy Wu Tours.

Claire Brighton, Atas account director, said: “Training and networking are key elements of our offering as an association, so we’re delighted to be offering this online event.

“We’re hearing from operators and destinations how bookings are on the rise as consumer confidence is growing and how the ease and security of escorted tours are key trends for the trade.

“Whether you’re new to the sector or already well-established, this afternoon of networking will be very useful for learning about what’s new from each operator and how to make the most of these lucrative opportunities.”

Taking place on March 22, the event will run from 2pm to 5pm.
