Australia - Travel Writing Webinar
As parts of the world recover from the worst of the pandemic, travel writing has had to become more resourceful, and its practitioners more creative and resilient. Equally, public relations professionals need to think critically about how their message can achieve cut-through. 

In this webinar, we chat with Thrillist Editor, Ben Tyers, Traveller Editor, Anthony Dennis, and Freelance Travel Writer, Dr Lindy Alexander about the world of travel journalism.

Watch the full webinar here to learn what you need to know to secure coverage in Australia's travel media publications.

New Zealand - Take your message sky-high

The best way to connect with travellers is in airport lounges and during flights. Telum networks with some of the region's biggest in-flight publications, including New Zealand's Kia Ora. With a readership of 281,000 and a digital issue distributed to 1.3 million Airpoints members, Kia Ora speaks to a significant slice of Kiwi travellers. 

We spoke with Editor, Virginia Larson, about the publication, her team, and what they want to see in a content pitch from communications teams.

New Zealand - The business of travel

From organising, planning and selling holidays, business trips, and incentive programmes, the business of travel is a lucrative and evolving industry. So why not speak directly to them? Telum sat down with Stu Freeman, Editor of TRAVELinc to learn about his travel trade publication and the types of content his editorial team produces.
