“Collaborate, work together, be bigger than one” – EPISODE 1: BRIAN ROBERTSON

In the first episode of Voices of Travel: The Next Chapters, Canadian Travel Press’ executive editor, Bob Mowat sets the scene, offering some observations on what it has been like to cover the industry for more than 40 years, before sitting down for a conversation with Brian Robertson about his time in the industry. Robertson, a 40-plus year industry veteran, talks about his first Job and tells the story of the launch of Vision Travel (now Direct Travel) back in the late 1990s, early 2000s. He observes: “It was probably some of the brightest minds that I know in travel, at least in retail travel and our whole idea was to collaborate, work together, be bigger as one, and we grew through mergers and acquisitions.”
