October 26, 2022.- The Corporate Association of Specialized Travel Agencies (ACAVe) began yesterday at the Radisson Collection hotel Gran Vía in Bilbao a new autumn round of the ACAVe Travel Market Tour, an itinerary of presentations throughout Spain designed to exposing first-hand to travel agents the latest developments in tourism services and products from the key operators in the sector.
The manager of ACAVE, Catiana Tur, welcomed and made a good balance of the summer season and commented on the prospects that the sector has for the coming months: "despite the uncertainty caused by the conflict in Ukraine and the corresponding inflation, travel agencies have not noticed the feared slowdown that some predicted for the fall. The number of reservations has been reduced compared to the summer but the activity is maintained”.
