The who’s who of the travel industry gathered in a show of support of The Travel Corporation’s TreadRight Foundation.

TTC CEO and foundation founder Brett Tollman flew in especially for the event and to mingle with the 60 Australian travel trade partners in attendance.

Tollman remarked that part of travel was to “tread light” and the guiding principle of TreadRight is to work to “ensure the environment and communities we visit remain vibrant for generations to come”.

Recent projects for the non-for-profit TreadRight Foundation, which is funded by TTC and supported by its family of brands, includes a Wildlife Initative, focusing on helping stop wildlife crime and using celebrity ambassadors Prince William, David Beckham and Yao Ming, as well as a Heritage Initative which help support select artisans that engage in the creation of handmade and culturally significant products.

In lieu of ‘goody-bags’, TTC made a US$25 donation to the foundation on behalf of all guests in attendance.
