ABTA’s regional business meetings to address credit card fraud measures

The Payment Services Directive will be the topic of discussion at ABTA’s latest programme of Regional Business Meetings, taking place between September and December this year.

The meetings are free for members to attend and provide an opportunity to hear directly from the association's experts on the latest industry developments, trends and policy updates.

Experts will discuss the implications for businesses following the latest update to the Payment Services Directive, which is designed to reduce fraud in consumer card payments by introducing enhanced checks through a two-stage verification process when transactions are made.

The travel association will also provide an update on its new independent research on consumer confidence in ABTA and other travel brands, as well as highlight how members can best use the association’s brand in their marketing materials.

There will be an opportunity for networking before and after the meetings with other ABTA members, as well as a chance to meet and engage with the senior management team.

Mark Tanzer, chief executive of the travel association, said: “With the ever-changing political and regulatory landscape our upcoming Regional Business Meetings come at a critical time and will provide our Members with an update on industry issues, as well as an overview of the latest Payment Services Directive update.

 “The Meetings give our Members the chance to ask ABTA’s experts any questions they may have about their business or the industry more broadly and we look forward to welcoming them at the events.”

The Regional Business Meetings are held twice a year (Autumn and Spring) in 11 locations across the country.

The dates for the Autumn meetings are as follows: September 18 – South Wales; October 1 – North West; October 16 – Eastern; October 22 – Yorkshire & North Midlands; October 23 – Northern Ireland; October 29 – Scotland; November 13 – Greater London; November 14 – South; November 21 – Midlands; December 3 – South West; December 5 – North East.

Members can book to register their free place at: abta.com/regionalbusinessmeetings
