Tokyo, Japan to Host ABTA's 2019 Travel Convention

Tokyo, Japan has been chosen as the host city of the Asssociation of British Travel Agent's (ABTA) 2019 Travel Convention.

The Rugby World Cup 2019 will be taking place in Japan during the convention, providing an added incentive for ABTA members to explore the country, and possibly support one, or more, of the competing teams by going to a match!

The convention will take place 7 - 9 October 2019 at the International Convention Center Pamir, which is connected to the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa. The hotel is centrally located and enjoys direct access to Haneda International Airport, Shinkansen (Bullet Train) rail lines and is only a few minutesí walk from Shinagawa Station Ė one of the largest in Tokyo.

The Japanese National Tourism Organisation (JNTO), Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA), All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Prince Hotels & Resorts will be the host partners for the convention.

Registrations for the convention in Tokyo will open early next year, though delegates can already reserve a place via the Travel Convention website which will guarantee the 2018 Early Bird Registration fee and a two week priority booking period with ANA when flight reservations open.

Mark Tanzer, ABTA Chief Executive, said, "I am delighted that Tokyo will be hosting the 2019 Travel Convention. With British holidaymakers showing an increasing interest in visiting Japan, the Convention will provide a great opportunity to show travel professionals all that it has to offer Ė from its incredible cuisine, beautiful landscapes and traditional architecture to its super speed trains and illuminated sky scrapers. This will be the first time we host a Convention in Eastern Asia and with a number of exciting events coming up in the next couple of years, now is the perfect time to visit. Iíd like to thank all the hosts for making this opportunity possible, and would encourage delegates to reserve a place as soon as they can.Ē

The ABTA 2018 Travel Convention was held in Seville, Spain.
