Peace has broken out between Australia’s two major accommodation lobby groups – the Australian Hotels Association (AHA) and the Accommodation Association of Australia (AAoA) – which yesterday announced a joint venture to provide “one voice” for Australia’s lodging industry.

This JV is the first step toward a full merger, which is expected to happen within the next three months. There’ll be a new organisation, board and CEO.

Industry insiders says the details are still to be worked through but that both parties are committed to making the JV work.
