Morocco Convention to be held in 2021

 Monday, April 13, 2020 


In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, ABTA has postponed its annual travel convention which was to take place in October 2020. The Morocco-based event will now be moved until the same time next year.


In autumn the association  will instead hold a UK-based convention at a similar time in the autumn.


At the present time ABTA and the tourist office’s attention and resources should be focused on dealing with the current critical situation impacting the travel industry in both the UK and Morocco. This was discussed with the Moroccan National Tourism Office.

ABTA chief executive, Mark Tanzer was disappointed to have to postpone this year’s planned convention in Marrakech, but the current circumstances left them with little choice.


He was  delighted that the Moroccan National Tourism Office has confirmed its support for hosting the event in October 2021, and have  no doubt that the convention then will be a great success for the  hosts,  delegates and partners.

This year they will host an industry event that will combine the annual Travel Matters policy event, normally held in June, with a convention focusing particularly on issues and opportunities as the industry rebuilds from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
