Speaking at the AGM, Cormac Meehan, said: “It is an honour to be returned for a second term as President of the ITAA. In 2016 we faced many challenges, including the collapse of a major bed bank company, uncertainty in the implementation and direction of the EU Package Travel Directive (EPTD), and results of the Brexit Referendum. However, in the midst of all these challenges the travel sector has become more robust. Our volume and value of market share has increased and our range of product offering has become more diverse to cater for the evolving needs and tastes of our customers.

“In my second term as President, I aim to build upon progress made in recent years and grow ITAA membership. It is also important that the ITAA continues to engage with Regulators, Government Departments and the relevant cabinet members to overcome the future challenges faced by the travel industry.”
