The Tourist Board at the ABTA conference 2009


For the fifth year in a row, the Costa del Sol Tourist Board has been present in the annual conference of the Association of British Travel Agents , the ABTA Travel Convention, which was held in Barcelona this year, from October 6 to 8. Formed in 1950, ABTA – The Travel Association now has 1,351 members (travel agencies, tour operators, and service companies) operating in 5,700 POS. It is the largest travel association in the UK, offering 90% of all the travel packages sold in the country and millions of individual services. In 2008, it amalgamated with the Federation of Tour Operators (FTO), thus creating a still more powerful engine in the travel industry.
