The Hong Kong Association of Travel Agents (HATA) is adding a new package for its Annual Overseas Convention after “overwhelming response” that saw the post-show tour packages sold out ahead of the event in October.

The 45th edition of the annual event will take place in Dubai, with two- to four-day options available to HATA members.

The sold-out package, priced at HK$7,968 (US$1,015), includes the convention on October 13, as well as a two days in Abu Dhabi (October 14, 15) before the return to Hong Kong on October 16.

HATA is now introducing a separate package with a one-day tour to Abu Dhabi (October 14) followed by a return home on October 15. This is priced at HK$6,438.

Slots on the two-day convention package (without post-show tour) are still available at HK$4,988. Themed How Artificial Intelligence (AI) impacts on the future of travel, the convention component will comprise a welcome address by HATA convention chairman Edmund Tsang; keynote speeches; coffee break; panel discussion; and an open forum moderated by HATA vice chairman Richard Willis; and concluding remarks by HATA chairman Ronald Wu.

The two-day package would also include an afternoon tour to visit Desert Safari or Dhow Cruise on the day of the convention (October 13).
