Travel media unites

The travel trade media in the UK and Ireland is uniting behind the #onetravelindustry movement to bring competing media businesses together with one common goal during the coronavirus crisis.

Titles including Abta Magazine, Cruise Adviser, Cruise Trade News, Selling Travel, Travel Bulletin, TravelMole and TTG are working together to stand behind the industry at a time when the sector faces its biggest ever threat.

All the brands will be using #onetravelindustry to showcase best practice, tips and experiences from across the travel industry to share how companies large and small are dealing with the impact of the coronavirus.

The group will also share each other's content under the hashtag to ensure the widest exposure possible for the learnings and advice to come out of the crisis, demonstrating 'one travel media' uniting behind one travel industry.

Each business has been informing their readerships of the unfolding crisis and supporting the industry since it began and will continue to do so, separate to the campaign.

The travel media signatories, each committing to promote best practice in travel for #onetravelindustry, are:

Steve Hartridge, editorial director, BMI Publishing

Chris Pitchford, CEO, Real Response Media

Jeanette Ratcliffe, publisher, Travel Bulletin

Graham McKenzie, managing director, TravelMole

Daniel Pearce, CEO, TTG Media

Sam Ballard and Anthony Pearce, directors, Waterfront Publishing

  • Good stuff

    This is good to see. There is a lot of solidarity going on in travel right now and its both practical and heartwarming in these never-seen-before, frightening times. Many of the businesses in the New Forest have formed a private FB group and are exchanging information to help each other to get through this..

  • Good to See This United Front

    During what is the most dramatic crisis in the lifetime of the industry since perhaps WW2, I think this sort of initiative is just what is needed. Competition and rivalry while usually healthy must, and should, be put to one side by evryone and every travel brand for this period. We need to work together to pull through. Well done for doing this!
