AFTA’s national roadshow
THE Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) will embark on a national roadshow in Mar and Apr to discuss “the most pertinent issues affecting travel business from across the travel value chain”.
Events will be held in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney CBD, Greater Sydney (Parramatta) and Brisbane, with members and key industry partners invited to attend.
AFTA Chief Executive Jayson Westbury said the workshops will discuss “a broad range of industry specific topics which the AFTA membership have been feeding back to us as the most relevant in the current economic climate and operating environment”.
Attendees will hear from the AFTA management team on matters related to the compliance and operations of ATAS, including the new Advertising Guidelines and how it applies to ATAS accredited entities.
Presentations will cover findings from the latest consumer research on the success of the ATAS television commercials, issues that AFTA is addressing at both State and Federal Government levels on behalf of industry, and insights on workforce and skills development initiatives for the travel industry.
AFTA will be joined by special guest speaker and Chief Economist of the St George Bank, Besa Deda who will discuss the “Ups, Downs and Roundabouts for Australia’s Economy in 2020”.
