Who’s Who in The ANZ Travel Zoo
People, Companies, Research, Data.
Travel IQ is an industry-first initiative dedicated to providing definitive data on the ANZ travel industry’s leading companies and people.
It fills a yawning gap in the local travel industry – so much going on, so little meaningful information on the people and companies who make it tick.
Research is well advanced, and the first iteration is due for release by June 1.
Travel IQ will feature:
- Top 150 travel businesses in Australia and NZ, local focus
- Detailed profiles, expert industry analysis, exclusive insights
- Information on hundreds of ANZ industry leaders
- Major industry investors, deals and transactions listed
- Key sector overviews and analysis
- Financial information where possible
- Interviews with industry entrepreneurs and innovators
- Member access to 3000+ unique stories on TravelTrends.biz
Travel IQ is being researched and written by TravelTrends.biz publisher Martin Kelly.
It will cover the leading companies and people in retail, inbound, cruise, shipping, attractions, operators, aviation, tours & activities, media, technology, shipping, car rental and accommodation.
There’s an initial focus on locally-owned companies and industry dynamics.
Due to nature of travel, private companies dominate the research though every publicly-listed company (there are now more than 30) with exposure to travel will be covered.
Travel IQ will also feature key New Zealand companies and investors, while select international companies with substantial local infrastructure and holdings will come under the microscope.
The aim is for Travel IQ to be the indispensable, insiders guide to the local travel industry.
It will evolve over time and more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
