 ASTW president Elisa Elwin said the ASTW as a whole is looking forward to reuniting as many members as possible in Sydney after what has been the most turbulent year for the travel and media industry in the history of the ASTW. 

 “We are already in strong discussions with industry partners to assist us in creating our convention and, although it will look different to previous years, the event will be an uplifting and inclusive occasion,” Elwin said.

“The convention will also provide opportunities for members of the ASTW to support our domestic tourism industry, which has also faced unprecedented challenges throughout the year, from the bushfires to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic,” she says.

Elwin said members of the ASTW are focused on planning stories and content and continuing the relationship with fellow members of the tourism industry by inspiring readers to think about where they next want to travel to.
