Save The Date!! 50th Annual TTRA International Conference Melbourne, Australia, 25 – 27 June 2019 Join us in Melbourne, Australia, for TTRA International’s 50th conference. A cultural mecca, Melbourne also lays claim to the sporting and events capital of the country, providing a fitting and vibrant atmosphere to showcase travel and tourism research. Over the course of the conference, we will navigate the terrain of shifting sands – reflecting not only the great Australian deserts and coastline, but also the influence of the external global environment on international tourism trends.

The term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ is as amazing and technologically advanced as it sounds. We have been hearing it for years in movies and documentaries, but now artificial intelligence is present in the real world and is affecting our everyday lives. This extends through to the tourism marketing and the travel and tourism industry in general. Bronwyn White tackled this topic recently on our successful Tourism Marketing Convention, together with her co-director Carolyn Childs and our clients.

Globally the influence of Millennials on travel and on marketing has been profound. In the US, Millennials are as large a generation cohort as Baby Boomers.

One person has gone above and beyond the call of duty in this regard ever since I began to seriously consider founding TTRA APac. Regardless of the time of day or night, she has always responded promptly and supportively to our many requests and seamlessly integrated our needs into that of TTRA overall. The 2016 Sue Beeton achievement award winner: Kathy Palmer As a chapter, we don’t pay any of her salary, but reap the benefits of her experience and passion. Late night/early morning calls and responses to our many requests, large and small, has supported us more than she would realize and gives us a direct link to the organization as a whole. Until Treeline came on board, I was not prepared to even consider starting this Chapter as we needed people who could take a long-term perspective in an … [Read more...] about Presenting the Inaugural Sue Beeton Achievement Award, 2016
