Key opportunities for coach tour operators taking groups to Europe post-BREXIT and the latest developments on Clean Air Zone restrictions in London and other cities will be top of the bill at February’s Coach Tourism Association’s 2020 conference in York.
The opening session on Monday 24 February will highlight the gains for operators providing they organise their tours correctly – plus some potential problems - and will feature speakers Tim Fairhurst from the European Tourism Association (ETOA) and Andy Warrender from the Confederation of Passenger Transport.
Delegates will be looking into the future of coach tour operations in 2020 with Daniel Hayes of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and Graham Vidler from the Confederation of Passenger Transport.
This will be followed on Tuesday by a close look the future of Clean Air Zone restrictions with speakers Peter Bradley of the London Tourist Coach Operators Association and Julian Ridge, Sustainable Transport Manager, City of York Council.
Said CTA Chair John Wales: “Our conference will not only update delegates on current and future requirements for coach operators in these two vital areas, but will also enable us to make a strong case for the coach as a solution to congestion and air pollution in our cities and support efforts to prevent unfair rules being imposed on operators without sufficient warning and time to adapt”.
