The Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO),  has chosen Jordan as the setting for its 2016 overseas conference, the grand finale of AITO’s 40th anniversary year.  It’s the first time that AITO has staged a conference in the country.

Sponsored by the Jordan Tourism Board and Royal Jordanian Airlines, the conference will take place from 23-28 November 2016, and will be targeted at business owners or AITO tour operators and AITO specialist Travel Agents, together with affiliate partners, and will cover the complexities of running a travel business in today's marketplace.

Chairman of AITO, Derek Moore, says: “We are excited about holding our 2016 conference in Jordan and look forward to working with the Jordan Tourism Board and Royal Jordanian Airlines on the event. The Kingdom has been described as ‘a quiet street in a busy area’, and has much to offer the visitor culturally, historically and scenically.

“Our time in the country will allow us not only to hold our Business Sessions on the shores of the Dead Sea but also to visit several of Jordan’s visitor highlights, including the Roman city of Jerash, the cultural magnificence of Petra and the scenic splendour that is Wadi Rum.

“It will, I’m confident, prove to be a splendid conference destination to mark AITO’s 40th anniversary year.”
