Due to continued uncertainty regarding the return of live in-person events, ITOA has taken the decision to hold the Workshops VIRTUALLY via the Converve platform.
The Virtual Workshops will take place on the dates below, commencing at 8.30am and will run for the full day until 5.00pm. Appointment slots are ten minutes long, with a two minute break between each, and scheduled morning, lunch, and afternoon breaks.
IMPORTANT: due to the nature of virtual appointments-based workshops, there will be a strict limit on the number of registrations per day. The number of places for tourism and hospitality suppliers will be at a lower level than previous years, and it is strongly recommended that you register early to avoid disappointment.
Registration will close on January 28th 2022, or earlier if capacity is reached.
WORKSHOP 1: Tuesday 1st March 2022
WORKSHOP 2: Wednesday 2nd March 2022
WORKSHOP 3: Tuesday 8th March 2022
