Travel Industry Hub opens


The Travel Industry Hub (TTIH) has made it official and opened its doors in Sydney last week, bringing with them an exciting first travel industry-specific coworking space to Australia. 

 

Richard Taylor, co-founder of TTIH explained the vision behind it saying, “The start of a new decade is a perfect time to launch a new way of working. More than simply a workspace, we're creating a genuine hub for travel and tourism professionals.”

The newly opened space offers desks, meeting rooms, private and virtual offices, as well as event space hire – all specifically tailored to fit the unique needs of the travel and tourism industry. 

 

It aims to create a community where anyone from the industry can foster connections more meaningfully while also ensuring the needed focus and privacy. 

 

Hot desks provide a getaway from the regular coffee shop or home office scene and dedicated desks help promote travel and tourism brands, making it easier to find new partnerships and network within the industry.

 

Private offices combine the flexibility of coworking whilst promoting a productive workspace. As Richard explains, “We rejected tightly packed, open plan desking because we're for one industry, and while it's great to be alongside likeminded people, the focus must also be on getting work done.”

 

The three meeting rooms offer a professional meeting environment and are available for booking by non-residents as long as they have a community membership. The largest of them is a 45sqm conference and boardroom that can also be used for events, product launches or training.

 

The Event & Training Space is the highlight of The Travel Industry Hub. Intended for larger workshops, events and industry gatherings, it gives access to a 145sqm customisable open area with a stage. The area fits up to 100 guests for a cocktail style event and for more formal events that require sitting, it easily fits up to 80 guests. It is a one-stop-shop for meeting events.

 

With an introductory rate of $600 + GST, businesses get a 3-hour usage of the space with full access to the AV system: TV, a lectern and a sound system at no additional charge. The kitchen attached to the space is fully functional with a commercial oven, fridge space and glassware included, and offers a choice between self-catering or arranging catering through TTIH at attractive rates. 

 

“We know how costly it can be to hire venue space in and around Sydney, so came up with a concept that’s convenient, intimate and affordable for companies to utilise within TTIH”, said Taylor.

 

Walter Nand and David Reeves, Directors at Ride The World Motorcycle Tours & Unique Cruises, were the first group to hold an event in the new Event & Training Space.

 

Praising the space, Walter thanked TTIH by saying, “Thank you so much for helping make our launch such a success. The space was perfect and the kitchen facilities made catering so much easier.”

 

Travellers Choice also recently held their training day at TTIH, with BDM – ACT/NSW Paula Moylan saying, “If anyone is looking for a great space to hold a meeting, product update or training, The Travel Industry Hub ticks all the boxes. Along with a great space, it has great access to the train station (only a few minutes walk) and plenty of catering options in the vicinity.”

 

The Travel Industry Hub is now open for private tours for people working in the industry.
