The Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) revealed its NTIA Custodians Council, which is tasked with preserving the integrity of the National Travel Industry Awards (NTIA) and continuing to recognise and reward excellence in the sector.
The six-member AFTA NTIA Custodians Council represents different segments of the travel industry.
The inaugural Custodians are Frontier Travel General Manager Ann-Catherine Jones and Jean Summers, Director of Product & Marketing, HR and Recruitment at GlobeNet Travel / Clean Cruising, representing Retail Agencies; Anywhere Travel Managing Director Barbara Whitten for Corporate Travel; Luxury Escapes CCO Tony Gothard for OTAs, NCL Director of Sales Damian Borg for Supplier – Cruise / Air and representing Wholesalers – Chris Fundell, Head of Marketing – Australasia, Globus family of brands. Journey Earth Co-Founder Dick Webster will represent Tour Operators.
The initial callout last year sought applicants to advise on and champion the NTIAs to continue to embody excellence in ATAS members.
AFTA CEO Dean Long said the six Custodians would ensure the travel industry’s night of nights continues to strike the right note in celebrating excellence in travel.
“Our NTIA Custodian Council will work with AFTA to preserve the integrity of the NTIAs while continuing to evolve the process of recognising and rewarding excellence in Australia’s travel sector,” Mr Long said.
“Congratulations and thank you to our inaugural Custodians. The team is very excited to work together to plan for the 2023 NTIAs in Melbourne on 18 November.”
