"If any academic is looking for a shining example of how to lobby central government effectively, then tourism’s efforts during the pandemic would have to be first in line. [TIA Chief Executive] Chris Roberts has been a constantly available and articulate presence in the media and – crucially – he has always been able to produce tourism operators in the field to back up and echo the TIA arguments for assistance." Gordon Campbell, columnist.
