What Customers are Saying About TravMedia

Karin Leperi

"TravMedia has been a lifesaver for me in providing contacts and targeted experts for interviews and quotes with little lead time. I couldn't do without this resource!"

Mark Chipperfield
Freelance journalist, editor and travel writer
Big Top Media Pty Ltd

"Travel is a fast paced and ever-evolving industry. Keeping tabs on hotel openings, takeovers, new airline routes (and closures), staff appointments and special events is almost impossible without a decent web-based tool. For me TravMedia fulfils that function admirably, supplying a digest of travel-related information specially tailored to my needs and interests. As a freelance operator writing mostly about the Pacific, South-East Asia and Australasia I find TravMedia an indispensable research tool -- providing story ideas, industry contacts and trend updates. Indeed, reading TravMedia is an essential part of my daily research routine."

Georgia Rickard
Editor at large, Virgin Australia
Hardie Grant Media

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything you guys do at TravMedia. The press wire, the editor call outs, the conferences - is just priceless. I've enjoyed so much opportunity through your network! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I thoroughly appreciate the connections, and my involvement in it."

Rob McFarland
Travel Writer

"TravMedia is my go-to resource for industry news, events and contacts. The Daily Summary feature where I get one email with a summary of all the releases that day is key. Rather than receiving dozens of separate releases from different PRs and tourism boards, I scan through this summary and focus on what's of interest. I can then click through to the main site to read the full release and access other resources such as images and video."

Matthew Maxey
Associate Director of Public Relations
Visit Franklin, TN

"TravMedia lets me get the message of Franklin, Tennessee out to a hyper-targeted list of media covering the travel industry, while also allowing me to keep an eye on industry trends and see what other destinations and media are talking about on a daily basis."
