Statement on OTA & AOP joint working.

Members and other stakeholders of both the OTA and AOP may be aware that OTA and AOP have been holding joint discussions over the last few weeks with a view to working more closely together over the next couple of years. These discussions will be ongoing over the coming months and we will keep members and stakeholder’s informed of any developments. One development that has emerged as a result of the initial discussions is that both the OTA and the AOP have agreed to hold Joint Annual Conferences over the next two years under the following format:

  • In 2018 the OTA will host and organise the conference in association with AOP.
  • In 2019 the AOP will host and organise the conference in association with OTA.
  • The 2018 OTA /AOP conference will be at the Jury's Inn Hinckley Island Hotel, Leicester from 21-23 September 2018.

Further details including booking arrangements and prices will be available through websites and social media over the next few weeks.

We'll see you there!
