Atas reveals shortlist for agents’ awards

The Association of Touring & Adventure Suppliers has unveiled the shortlist of agents who are in the running for its awards later this month.

The awards will be announced during the Atas conference, which will return to Birmingham on October 19-20, with a face-to-face format and the theme of ‘Learn. Experience. Achieve.’

Claire Brighton, Atas account director, said: “The conference and our awards ceremony will be the first opportunity since the pandemic began for travel agents to meet, network face-to-face and learn about selling holidays in the touring and adventure sector.

“Agents have faced the most difficult 18 months in living memory so we’re excited to be honouring those who have managed to support the touring and adventure sector with such enthusiasm during such hard times.

“All agents have gone above and beyond during the past year or so but our nominees have really stood out.

“Our judging panel of touring and adventure operators was very impressed by the efforts of these shortlisted agents to support the sector, so we’re looking forward to celebrating their success later this month at our awards ceremony.”

The event will be at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre, which successfully hosted the annual Atas conference in 2017 and 2018.

The conference is being held in association with Travel Weekly Group and sessions will be moderated by editor-in-chief Lucy Huxley.
