About

The reason this website and associated entities exist is to deliver high-quality information on the new travel economy to curious individuals and businesses.

There are three components: TTNews, conferences and the website.

TTNews generally features one lead story and several smaller stories – all original, and all directly related travel trends in the Asia-Pacific. It is published every few weeks and distributed by email to industry leaders throughout the region. It is researched and written by Martin Kelly.

Conferences are an important element of the overall information mix, giving people the opportunity to meet and exchange information. Conferences include:

  • TRAVELtech, established in 1999. It has a great reputation for delivering excellent information in an egalitarian environment.
  • No Vacancy, Australia's accommodation industry conference.

Travel Trends will continue to evolve with further information initiatives planned and, like most other things here, is owned and operated by Bluewater Press.

If you have any questions or comments about the site, please contact Martin Kelly, who is based in Sydney, Australia, and can be reached on: Landline:  612 – 9882-1575; Mobile: 61-414-774-978; or martin dot kelly at traveltrends dot biz.
