Bernardi’s inbound venture
One of the new exhibitors at Australian Tourism Exchange in Adelaide last month was Australia and Beyond Holidays, which is chaired by Simon Bernardi. Bernardi, who also continues his close involvement with Travel Partners, has wide experience in inbound operations. Australia and Beyond offers a sophisticated FIT online booking platform, is ATAS accredited and holds Approved Destination Status for the inbound Chinese market. Last year the company welcomed more than 400 groups to Australia and is currently experiencing strong growth, Bernardi told travelBulletin.
