ASEAN Travel & Tourism Hall of Fame. Designed to mark the 50th anniversary of ASEAN, this is the first website to honour the many industry stalwarts who founded and shaped one of the region’s most remarkable economic sectors. Conceptualised by Travel Impact Newswire Executive Editor Imtiaz Muqbil, it will be a live, ongoing project open to anyone who consider themselves, or their parents, qualified to be listed. The individuals must have been born before 1960, and held a senior executive decision-making position before 2000. Small and medium sized entrepreneurs are particularly welcome. Please email profiles to imtiaz@travel-impact-newswire.com.
