Travel Again Project

Travel Again began a volunteer, non-profit project to unite the global travel industry.

Coordinating industry participants in support of this platform

  • Individual industry supporters need to be organized

  • Corporate support will be needed to achieve objectives

Developing a global multi-sector advocacy platform

  • Leverage disparate initiatives to create aggregate industry approach for policy makers to access

  • Congressional support exists but needs to be coordinated

Reviewing and disseminating relevant information and best practices globally

  • Supplier-led efforts have produced the vast majority of information and policy materials to date, but it is not centrally cataloged, reviewed and organized

  • Buyer-led information and best practices has been scarce until more recent independent volunteer efforts have emerged

  • Trend data and industry outlook forecasts exist but are not synchronized or media-ready
