Where do travel writers fit in?

Tourism Industry Update
where do travel writers fit in? 
This is the subject of the talk in Wellington by Ann-Marie Johnson, PR with the Tourism Industry Assocation. Ann-Marie, longtime member of the Travel Communicators’ Association, was a major organiser of the mammoth Tourism Rendezvous New Zealand (TRENZ) event in Queenstown in late May. TRENZ brings together around 270 New Zealand tourism operators and a similar number of international travel and tourism buyers so it is an incredible organisational challenge. Ann-Marie will suggest how tourism and writers can help each other.

Time: 6pm on Monday, 27 June. 

Place: Museum Hotel, 90 Cable Street (near Te Papa). Street parking available.

Meeting place: The bar on the third floor of the hotel for socialising and drinks/nibbles. Presentation starts in Agostini Room (4th floor) about 6.30pm.

Cost: Travcom members $10; non-members $15. 

Register with and send cheque to: Helen Davies, Travcom administrator, at 2B Pukehana Avenue, Epsom, Auckland 1023. Ph: 09 624 5707 or email: if you’d like to use internet banking or have any queries. Register by Thursday 23 June. 

The event has been organised by the Wellington branch of the Travel Communicators’ Association.
