Jordan to play host to AITO overseas conference

The Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) has announced Jordan as the setting for its overseas conference this year.

Sponsored by the Jordan Tourism Board and Royal Jordanian Airlines, the conference will take place from November 23-28, and will be targeted at business owners of AITO tour operators and AITO Specialist Travel Agents, together with affiliate partners, and will cover the complexities of running a travel business in today’s marketplace.‎

Chairman of the association, Derek Moore, said: “We are excited about holding our 2016 conference in Jordan and look forward to working with the Jordan Tourism Board and Royal Jordanian Airlines on the event. The Kingdom has been described as ‘a quiet street in a busy area’, and has much to offer the visitor culturally, historically and scenically.

“Our time in the country will allow us not only to hold our business sessions on the shores of the Dead Sea but also to visit several of Jordan’s visitor highlights, including the Roman city of Jerash, the cultural magnificence of Petra and the scenic splendour that is Wadi Rum. It will, I’m confident, prove to be a splendid conference destination to mark our 40th anniversary year.”

Chairman of AITO Specialist Travel Agents, Gemma Antrobus, said: “I’m really happy that we’ll be travelling to Jordan for the conference this November. The conference will be held at several locations throughout Jordan, including The Dead Sea and Petra, allowing conference delegates to experience some of the joys and magical experiences of the country.

“Jordan really is a ‘must visit’ destination and one that every AITO agent ought to know in greater depth, so that they can include it within their range of suggested mid-haul break holidays to clients.”

There will be one day of business sessions, held at the Mövenpick Resort & Spa, Dead Sea, which will include topics on the retail travel trade environment, business management and the entrepreneurial arena. Networking events will also be combined to afford a better exchange of ideas and views from across the travel industry spectrum.
