Webinar #3 - Understanding Travel Industry & Trends

Wednesday 26 October, 12pm (ADST)

Australian’s don’t just “go online” they “live online”.

87% of travellers use the internet to plan their travel. In fact 52% of consumers are less likely to engage with a company if that company has no mobile website. This is because consumers expect a seamless experience no matter what the divide or where they are. They demand information instantly to make informed travel plans. This creates tremendous opportunity for businesses to connect with consumers. It also highlights the importance of businesses being online. It is therefore imperative that travel agents are online connecting with consumers when and where they are researching their travel. AFTA is very active online, educating consumers that they should always book travel with an industry accredited ATAS travel agency.

Watch the webinar and learn all about travel industry and online trends.
