The Bookable Tourism Story
Bookable Tourism is access to technology, marketing and distribution knowledge and processes for ALL tourism businesses, both small and large.
Having worked in tourism (hotels and attractions) and travel technology for nearly 20 years, Meredith decided that these small businesses needed access to learning about marketing strategy and campaign templates that was simple and actionable in their own businesses and Bookable Tourism was born.
What started as consulting work, and with the interruption of covid, it became clear that the messages to tourism operators but all the government authorities was to get online. However the feedback from the operators was, “great to know, but how do we do that?”. Having worked in a Booking System start up and helping hundreds of operators implement a new system, “How to choose a booking system” workshops were developed and began role out throughout 2020.
Businesses know diversity can be key to offset risk, and that having a vision, strategy and goals are important elements to reach their potential. Many operators are missing an important ally in their sales process which can help streamline operations and aid in converting opportunities into sales: a booking system and supporting software ecosystem.
Bookable Tourism is here to empower Tourism businesses to start the process of finding booking software and to educate them with simple ways to build effective sales and marketing strategies.

With 20 years experience in the Tourism Industry across hotels, tours, attractions and travel technology, I have specialised in distribution and marketing, and the past 8 years, I delved into booking technology as a solution to streamlining connectivity between supplier and distribution and meeting customer expectations.
I develop customer first marketing strategies which result in higher conversion and sales opportunities, because at the end of the day, I know that tourism operators need to sell seats in order for them to keep doing what they love each and every day.
Throughout my career, I have assisted a multitude of businesses select and successfully install new booking and ticketing technology. My goal to reach is 100% of tourism businesses with a connected booking system installed.
A big goal? Yes. But as an industry, I believe we can get there.
