Asia Pacific Chapter

About Us

As an association with more than 40 years of history, TTRA and its members represent an impressive body of travel industry related knowledge. Historical trends, ground-breaking research and important studies are all housed in the TTRA compendium of knowledge.

TTRA APac has been established as a place for all those interested in travel and tourism research in the region (or of the region) to come together. The Association membership comprises DMO research managers, industry research users, ‘vendors’ (research consultants), academic researchers and post graduate students.

As defined by United Nations, the Asia Pacific Region incorporates a wide geographic region, from Australia and New Zealand through the Pacific nations, Asia, India and parts of the Middle East. We welcome members from all regions, but also those from other parts of the world interested in research in this region.


Membership of the Asia Pacific Chapter is free once you join TTRA International – simply check the box on the application form which you can access from the link on the Left Hand Side of this page.
