AAVEA 2020

This year, the AAVEA Annual Conference will be virtual. Current events mean that we can’t meet in person, but as an industry particularly hard hit by the pandemic it’s more important than ever that we gather so that we can continue learning, growing, and navigating our way to a full recovery for the tourism industry. 

Join us on 20 August 2020 for AAVEA Virtual. We’re excited to take the leap to virtual, and we’ll be by your side every step of the way as we introduce you to the virtual platform. Everything you expect from the AAVEA Annual Conference will be still be there: great content, national and international perspectives, networking with colleagues, support from suppliers, and updates on products and services that help make attractions great.

Registration opens in July, and be sure to watch this space for more details on the programme.
