The Advantage Travel Partnership is integrating its annual ITMC conference into its main conference in 2024.
Both conferences will take place in Costa Mujeres, Mexico, from May 15-18.
ITMC is aimed at global independent TMCs and was held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in August 2023 in partnership with Hickory Global Partners.
“As many delegates who attend ITMC are based in North America it makes sense for us to create one larger more collaborative gathering where we can include more of a laser focus on business travel, focusing on key industry issues, trends and opportunities, with a line-up of outstanding speakers, that will ultimately build on the strong content delivered in Fort Lauderdale,” said Guy Snelgar, Director of Global Business Travel at The Advantage Travel Partnership.
“In practice, this will mean more dedicated time on global business travel than even before, both in the conference plenary and workshop activities.”
He added: “We will also be giving an in-dept view of the leisure space both in the main plenary and through a dedicated leisure travel workstream and workshops. This varying content supports our ambition to be a one-stop-shop for all independent travel businesses and will allow delegates to tailor their conference experience to get the most out of their time in Mexico”.
