industry news

This is a very fast-paced industry and many bodies report on its news, both inside and outside of the industry. This is something that can definitely get overwhelming.

For major breaking industry news, you can count on all of the major organizations to report on them, so it's not necessary to follow them all (though this is completely up to you).

The Master List lists several, and common options include:

OpenJaw
TravelPulse
TravelWeek
Insider Travel Report

For suppliers you are interested in selling or that you often sell, you may want to get on their mailing list (email the BDM if you specifically want on their mailing list).

 

If you see suppliers listed in these emails (this will be common), it does not mean you can book with them. All suppliers outside the Master List and Ensemble must be approved before they can be used.
