ASTA President and CEO Zane Kerby says the upcoming ASTA Global Convention will have a stronger focus on training and education for travel agents. "We're focusing on the educational component first," Kerby said. One of the highlights of the convention will be a town hall event discussing the New Distribution Capability program being pushed by the International Air Transport Association. "Right now NDC is just a resolution, so it's impossible for people to understand. It's a big issue that has enormous ramifications for how agents share data, when they share data and how they will be compensated," Kerby said.
