ABTA will sponsor a debate on the future of the Package Travel Directive in Brussels later this week with a delegation from the UK.
Malcolm Harbour CBE MEP, chair of the European Parliament’s IMCO Committee; Brian Simpson MEP, chair of the European Parliament’s TRAN Committee; ABTA’s chief executive Mark Tanzer; Hans-Peter Mayer MEP, Lead Rapporteur at the IMCO Committee and Michel de Blust, secretary general at the ECTAA will present to Brussels about consumer protection on Wednesday.
Altogether 50 representatives from the European travel industry will attend the meeting.
“ABTA has been leading the debate in Brussels to modernise the Package Travel Directive, and this event is a fantastic opportunity to put forward our Members’ views to some of the most influential MEPs taking part in the revision process. With some of the leading European travel businesses in attendance, there hasn’t yet been a better arena to discuss and debate the content of the proposed PTD revisions and engage directly with the policymakers,” said Tanzer.
