Sydney, Australia (March 21, 2020) – Rezdy, the world’s leading independent online booking and distribution platform for the experiences industry, announced today the launch of a new online portal on Rezdy.com, #together4tourism, designed to help tourism professionals navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The free site is designed to provide a central place for operators in the experiences industry to get the vital knowledge and skills they need to not only survive the current crisis but bounce back stronger than ever.
The #together4tourism portal features a wide range of topics, from practical expert advice and tips on keeping business afloat in the current climate to operational, marketing and business tools and strategies that can help professionals prepare for the future. Content on the new portal is centered on six themes:
“The experiences industry will not have faced a more challenging situation than it faces with COVID-19. The first focus is to ensure survival, by making the right decisions. We’ve already seen a wave of help, tips and encouragement from individuals and businesses across the internet to support this. Very quickly the focus needs to turn to the positives, how you can take the opportunity to build the foundations for excellence once life begins to return to normal.” said Rezdy CEO Chris Atkin. “There has never been a more important time to come together as a community to support one another and help each other to get through this. The purpose of this initiative is to bring all of those great resources under one banner to create a place where everyone can contribute to the revival of the industry.”
The first webinar in the #together4tourism series will feature Simon Mainwaring, Head of Product, speaking about “5 tips that you can do today to create efficiencies for your business.” (Register here)
Among the site’s “must reads” are the following:
“I believe that once people are able to move freely again the first thing they will turn to after isolation is the experiences industry,” Atkin said. “As a result, this industry will bounce back and, when it does, it will be strong that ever. We want to help all professionals across the experiences ecosystem to be set up for success.”
