Tourism & Transport Forum’s new app is the industry’s “single source of truth”: Osmond

The Tourism & Transport Forum’s new app is officially live today, which it’s claiming to be a one-stop shop for the latest industry news and research, including exclusive consumer data.

TTF chief executive Margy Osmond said the app is jam-packed with the orgnaisation’s full catalogue of video interviews and webinars, as well as TTF event information, member details and direct links to the team’s emails and contact numbers.

Osmond said the ‘Tourism & Transport Forum’ app is available on both Apple and Android devices, and enables journalists, policymakers and all interested stakeholders to be able to locate relevant information at their fingertips.

“It will be a single source of truth with research data, content and contacts available whenever you need it,” she said.

The app includes exclusive full access to the TTF COVID-19 Travel and Leisure Survey conducted by Newgate Research, which contains a wide range of useful data about the travel intentions and preferred transport modes of over 1,500 Australians.

“I encourage all to download the app by simply searching the words ‘Tourism & Transport Forum’ in full and using the ‘&’ in your iPhone, iPad or Android device,” Osmond said.

“As many of us continue to work from home in at least in part for the immediate future, we are relying more on new technology and flexible communication to stay informed.

“We hope this app will be a useful go-to guide, and make sure to keep an eye out for new industry updates as they become available via push notifications as we all ramp up our recovery work.”
