“Our hearts go out to all our friends and ASTA members in the South of France today, especially those who lost loved ones in Nice. ASTA is reaching out to our 35 member agencies in France to offer any assistance we can. We hope and pray that France recovers from this tragedy quickly.”
Rebranded in 2018 as the American Society of Travel Advisors, ASTA is the leading global advocate for travel advisors, the travel industry and the traveling public. Its members represent 80 percent of all travel sold in the United States through the travel agency distribution channel. Together with hundreds of internationally-based members, ASTA’s history of industry advocacy traces back to its founding in 1931 when it launched with the mission to facilitate the business of selling travel through effective representation, shared knowledge and the enhancement of professionalism.
