Coworking comes to travel industry
TWO Australian travel entrepreneurs have launched the first ever coworking spaces specifically for travel and tourism.
The Travel Industry Hub, led by Richard Taylor, ex Equity Travel Group, and Luke Crawford from The Visa Machine, aims to “bring industry coworking to every corner of Australia and NZ”.
Taylor said businesses of all sizes were attracted to freeing themselves from long leases and liabilities, and instead finding a fluid space that could grow or contract with them.
Similarly for individuals, coworking spaces could provide benefits in terms of productivity and mental wellbeing as they interacted with others.
Crawford said the organisation was planning its first spaces in Sydney and Auckland but is also seeking interest across all regions - see thetravelindustryhub.com.
