Brexit Breakfast Briefing – London

Event details

ABTA is delighted to announce that our 2018 Brexit Breakfast Briefing is free to attend for ABTA Members and Partners

Following the announcement that the Brexit talks will move on to the next phase, ABTA’s timely event will look at what travel businesses can do to prepare for Britain’s exit from the European Union.

Many travel companies have already begun to look ahead to 2019. Key travel industry issues such as aviation access and visa free travel will now need to be addressed in the Brexit negotiations. A transitional agreement has been proposed, but the final outcome is unlikely to be known for some time. What are the possible scenarios and what will they mean for your travel business?  What can your travel business do to prepare for Brexit?

This breakfast briefing will focus on the priority areas for travel, including: 

  • Aviation access and open skies
  • Business and consumer confidence and the appetite for travel.
  • Employing workers overseas and the EU Posted Workers Directive
  • Protecting consumer rights

Refreshments will be provided.


  • Key priorities for travel and tourism as Britain exits the European Union
  • Perspectives from the Government 
  • A legal perspective
  • Market and consumer outlook for 2019
  • Panel discussion – what your travel business must do to prepare for Britain's exit from the EU in March 2019


The briefing will be moderated by Alan Wardle, ABTA’s Director of Public Affairs. You will also hear insights from ABTA’s Chief Executive, Mark Tanzer.
