Audley Travel held their annual supplier breakfast meeting in London on Thursday 8 November following WTM 2018. This year they added an awards ceremony to highlight those suppliers who are doing something extraordinary. There was one award for each Audley Value and also one for responsible tourism.
Destination Asia Indonesia was presented with the responsible tourism award.
James Pook, Southeast Asia Regional Product Manager at Audley Travel commented, “This is for their great work on policies such as, reducing plastic (clients now receive glass bottles of Balinese volcanic water), and introducing eco-friendly cold towels. Lots of their product development helps local people benefit and is sensitive to issues such as animal welfare. Audley is also working on this but in some ways Destination Asia are probably ahead of us. Everything they do has a responsible focus as they are Travelife accredited.”
Product Manager David Nuetzel visited the offices in London to receive the award. A second award was handed to Destination Asia Indonesia just a few days prior at the WTM when David collected their Travelife Partner certificate. Congratulations Destination Asia Indonesia!
