ASTA Creates Hotel Distribution Advisory Committee


In an effort to better advance its mission to represent and advocate for the travel agency community at all levels of government, before the travelling public and within the industry itself, the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) has created a Hotel Distribution Advisory Committee made up of travel agency and industry representatives with particular expertise in the hotel and lodging sector.

“Each week brings a new reminder that our industry is ever-changing, and we believe having a group of member experts to call on will put us in a better position to do our jobs as the industry’s national trade association,” said ASTA president Zane Kerby.

The objectives of the Hotel Distribution Advisory Committee include: helping ASTA understand the implications of emerging hotel and lodging-related issues; setting priorities for ASTA and the industry with regard to these issues; advising on the best way to respond and position ASTA on hotel and lodging-related developments; and providing an opportunity for members to share intelligence and otherwise stay abreast of and engaged in current industry issues. The committee, which will meet on a regular basis throughout the year, will adhere to all relevant antitrust laws and regulations.
