TIA Campaign: Media Reports On Benefits of Travel


To the extent that the Travel Industry Association takes seriously the disability community as a travel market the following letter from Roger Dow, TIA President and CEO, is a hopeful sign:

As you may know, TIA has been sharing information in recent months on the personal benefits of travel and taking a trip. I am happy to note that the media is beginning to report on the contributions travel makes to individuals, as illustrated in articles in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.

I was also introduced recently to a blog called Sure To Meet, which provides tips and information on business and social networking. It highlighted how face-to-face meetings are still best for building relationships. I want encourage you to help us get the word out by passing along the articles and the information we’ve compiled.

Through the Benefits of Travel, TIA provides a one-stop shop for survey results and facts that demonstrate how travel benefits everyone personally in the areas of:

* relationship building,
* career success and productivity, and
* health and wellness.

In addition, there is an interesting "Other Important Facts" section. All of this information is also available online at www.tia.org/Benefits.

Let’s work together to help everyone better understand that when we travel, the benefits are everywhere.

Best regards,
Roger Dow, TIA President and CEO
Travel Industry Association
