Sent to: All Skål International Members

Most of the critical global tradeshows are starting this fall; look at the upcoming global events in the travel industry!

The world is re-opening and as members of a Travel and Tourism organization, we need to embrace the opportunities.

Our job is to dedicate ourselves to the improvement of all aspects of Skål International that affect all our members.
By Leighton Cameron, International Councillor, Skål International New Zealand
"Skål International New Zealand has had representation on the International Council since 1971 with Harold Denton being our first Councilor. There have been 10 additional New Zealand Skålleagues who have held the position since then and of those three have gone on to become Skål International World President."
This time we highlight Alison (Grant) Partridge, from Skål International Victoria, Canada, as Skålleague of the month.

Let's find out more about her!
"I firmly believe that members need to understand the relevancy of their club on a local basis but also on a national and international basis. To understand that the network at their fingertips opens doors and offers opportunities unsurpassed on a global basis. But it must be fun too."

An article by Riaan Jordaan, 2021 President of Skål International Garden Route, and owner of Riaan Jordaan Marketing
"While there are numerous arguments for using influencers vs. content creators and vice versa, we, as an agency that specializes in tourism, prefer to work with content creators for the following reasons and use the following checklist to find the perfect match for our brands...".
An article by Walter Nand, member of Skål International Sydney and its immediate past President. Founder and director at Unique Cruises and director at Ride The World Motorcycle Tours

"...Many of us in the travel and tourism industry believe that as soon as our borders are open, we will see a tsunami of travellers wanting to get off the island and see the world. Those of us who are planning for this will do very well. Those who are hesitant, and wait until the official government announcement that the borders will reopen, run the risk of missing the wave and will have to scramble to catch up."

The process is very easy and speady since the #SafeTravels Stamp is a guide for each company to apply these globally approved protocols under their own responsibility.
