IFWTWA Member Benefits Increase

Recent negotiations with industry suppliers have proved fruitful for Australian and international members of the International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Associations (IFWTWA).

Graeme Kemlo, Australian-based board member of the International Food Wine and Travel Writers Association has held successful discussions with many suppliers as part of the Australasian division’s strategy to form strategic partnerships with industry leaders.

“We’ve struck a deal for our members with two key partners – Nikon and Interline Reservation Service and the benefits to members are substantial” he said.

Kemlo has also said the relationship with Nikon means that IFWTWA members will receive an exceptional service on the purchase of photographic equipment and will have the opportunity to participate in photographic training and Nikon sponsored activities over the coming years.

Interline Reservation Services have now offered IFWTWA members a discounted membership. Substantial discounts to cruises, airline and accommodation are now available to any Australasian IFWTWA member who takes up the IRS membership offer.

Further discussions with other indentified strategic partners are under way and according to IFWTWA Australasia Chairman, Kevin Moloney, will increase the benefits of membership even further.

“We’re looking at long-term relationships with key industry partners and those that we’ve opened up discussions with can clearly see the benefits in being associated with IFWTWA. Our international profile and wide-reaching media access is unparalleled and makes us an attractive proposition,” he said yesterday.

Negotiations are progressing well for Write Down Under - IFWTWA’s international conference which will be held in Melbourne in 2013 where Food Wine and Travel writers form the US and Europe will descend on Melbourne for the three days. “Vital to the success of the conference will be the relationships we are putting in place today,” Moloney added.
