Worldwide Motoring and Touring Clubs Focus on Improved Member Benefits and Services
The 2003 General Assembly of the Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT), to be held in Melbourne next week, will bring together delegates from 50 countries, representing over 110 million motoring and touring members.
The Assembly is being jointly sponsored by the Australian Automobile Association (AAA) and the RACV in Victoria. The RACV is also celebrating its centenary.
The President of the AAA, Tony Stacey, said he was looking forward to welcoming delegates to Melbourne for the Assembly. “The Assembly provides an opportunity to exchange ideas and explore successful services and member benefit programs from around the world,” he said.
“AIT constituent clubs representing members from countries like Japan, the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, the Philippines, Italy, Finland, Slovenia, China, Chile, Kenya and Hungary will be attending the Assembly which has a focus on enhancing the personal benefits of club membership. Several clubs are for example, offering a range of programs to assist members to reduce the cost of petrol and reports on these will be of great interest.
“Road travel and touring is the backbone of personal and family travel and the opportunity for like organisations to discuss ways of improving services to the 110 million members of the AIT constituents will be a key focus of the seminars and workshops in Melbourne at the Annual General Assembly,” Mr. Stacey said.
The AIT General Assembly will be held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne on the 6th, 7th and 8th of October.
