The timing could have been better, then again it could have been much worse, or maybe it’s just about right. It all depends on your perspective.
The Travel Industry Hub, Australia’s first co-working, meeting and event space for travel and tourism companies, is now open and ready to welcome tenants ready to either bust out of their home offices or larger businesses that, like so many, are downsizing.
Co-founder Richard Taylor (pictured, above) says the complex on the third floor of a North Sydney office building was ready to go when COVID first hit it late March, delaying the opening for several months but is welcoming socially distanced occupants.
“We’re now open and are looking for tenants,” says Taylor, who started the business with Luke Crawford – the pair united by a vision to bring the industry together in a creative, collaborative and supportive space.
Taylor says it’s been a challenging few months but the vision remains intact, while he’s doggedly optimistic about the future as NSW slowly emerges from COVID.
Meaningful connections have never been more important and there’s no doubt The Travel Industry Hub will be the ideal base for travel people and businesses to base themselves and rebuild after months of strange isolation.
Daily rates at The Travel Industry Hub start from $30 for a co-working space, while private offices cost from $135 a week. There are also meeting rooms and a 125 square metre event space for casual hire.
