Was lovely to see so many faces joining our “Virtual Pub Night”. Lots of positive feedback on the recent lifting of restrictions and it sounds like everyone in accommodation & beauty therapy is preparing themselves for re-opening next week. Lots of stories were shared from members who were forced to re-invent their business plan to help them stay busy and survive the COVID-19 times. The general feeling is that many will continue to run their business using this model so it will be interesting to see what the future holds for us all in Tourism!

We welcomed Bart from ibooked.online as a new member. If you’re an accommodation provider, make sure to look him up! He also has a new venture underway called Stay Local Australia. It will be great to finally see an Australian OTA promoting our businesses for a change.

Unfortunately our dedicated tour operators are still waiting for the green light. Fingers crossed we’ll be seeing them out and about again soon.

Thanks to all who popped by to tell us their story.
