Train strikes force ITM to take trends event virtual

ITM has decided to make its forthcoming trending summit a virtual event due to the planned train strikes in early December.

ASLEF train drivers are to stage a number of strikes and overtime bans from December 2-8 as part of a long-running dispute over pay.

Union members at 16 train operating companies will walk out on different days.

“We know many attendees hugely value networking with industry colleagues but the scale of the proposed strikes meant many could have been impacted,” said a statement from ITM.

The ITM event will discuss key industry trends and how to take advantage of them to rebuild and refocus on a stronger, more responsible industry and travel programme for 2024 and beyond.

All those who registered will be automatically registered for the virtual event and will receive instructions next week.
