Advanced Travel Marketing Seminar – London

Event details

Ahead of ABTA’s first seminar on Advanced Travel Marketing next month, event partner Accord give their thoughts and tips on marketing techniques in the ‘digital age’.

This seminar delivers practical guidance and actionable insights for travel marketers. Learn how to boost your brand and improve the performance of your marketing campaigns.

In an increasingly digital age, new channels, tools and techniques are launched on a regular basis. Marketers face a much more complicated landscape than they have before and consumers are overwhelmed with choice. Travel brands find themselves looking for new ways to connect with the modern traveller. Learn how to improve customer experiences at all stages of the holiday lifecycle, from browsing and booking through to post-departure.

This comprehensive seminar is aimed at travel marketers who have a good grasp of the basics of marketing and would like to expand and develop their knowledge of travel-specific marketing techniques and developments, both on and offline. 

Attend to hear how digital marketing techniques have affected traditional print and email methods, and where they now fit amongst newer players such as mobile and social media. Consider future marketing trends and learn how to maintain brand integrity at every step of the customer journey.
