November 10, 2022.- ACAVe, the Corporate Association of Specialized Travel Agencies, yesterday held a new edition of the ACAVe Travel Market Tour Seville at the Radisson Collection Hotel, after the one organized on March 16 in the same Andalusian city. The event is an opportunity to meet again with tour operators, airlines and train companies, hotel chains, tourist offices and leisure companies and show the new products and tourist destinations offered by specialized agencies.
Chaired by Jordi Martí, and moderated by Catiana Tur, manager of the association, the meeting served to verify, in Martí's words, "that tourist activity has fully recovered and is operating at levels similar to those of autumn 2019, although we hope that inflation subsides little by little to ensure the success of the Christmas and winter campaign”.
