Industry invite: AFTA's National Roadshow

AFTA/ATAS members and industry partners invited to attend National Roadshow

Next month, the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) invites members and key industry partners to join them as they embark on a National Roadshow to discuss the most pertinent issues affecting travel business from across the travel value chain including: travel agencies – corporate and leisure, wholesalers, tour operators, consolidators and the broader industry stakeholders.


AFTA CEO Jayson Westbury said, “The workshops will discuss a broad range of industry specific topics which the AFTA membership have been feeding back to us as the most relevant in the current economic climate and operating environment.”



The AFTA Management Team will present across matters related to the compliance and operations of ATAS including the new Advertising Guidelines and how it applies to ATAS accredited entities.


Head of Marketing and Communications will present findings from the latest consumer research on the success of the ATAS television commercials. Head of Public Policy and Advocacy will address the most current and pressing issues that AFTA is addressing at both State and Federal Government levels on behalf of industry, and newly appointed Head of Education and Training will present and provide insights on workforce and skills development initiatives for the travel industry.


Joining AFTA will be guest speaker and chief economist of the St George Bank, Besa Deda who will discuss the ups, downs and roundabouts for Australia’s Economy in 2020. Deda has nearly 20 years’ extensive experience in economic research and forecasting and will share her insights on the potential risks and opportunities for domestic and global economies with a specific focus on the impact on the travel industry.
