Sustainability Award for Tropic! LATA 2012
L A T A Members’ Newsletter
Dear Members and Friends,
Hopefully you have caught your breath following the WTM, a busy period for many of us. We do hope you enjoyed this year’s LATA party at St. John’s Smith Square. The feedback we have received from members and guests has been very positive, but we know we can always improve, so any feedback or ideas will be very welcome.
Events like the WTM party don’t happen by chance, so on behalf of LATA and its members we would like to publicly thank the support and generosity of our sponsors the Rio Convention & Visitors Bureau, WTM Latin America and Lonely Planet, as well as the venue itself.
We would also like to congratulate our award winners on the night that were honoured by the LATA membership for “Promotional Success”, Turismo Chile; for “Sustainability”, Inkaterra (with a commendation for Tropic Journeys in Nature); for “Innovation”, Mashpi (with a commendation for Crillon Tours); and for “Customer Service”, Journey Latin America. Paulo Senise of the Rio Convention & Visitors Bureau was also inducted into the LATA Hall of Fame. Its’ 5th recipient.
We hope to see a good turn out of members for the Airline Forum that will be held on 12 December at Canning House. Your chance to meet the people who fly your clients to-and-from Latin America, and learn their plans for 2013. They will also be taking your questions. Drinks after will be a good way to kick off the festive season.
Another important date for the diary is Wednesday, 30 January 2013, when we will be celebrating LATA 21st Anniversary at a reception on the House of Lords Terrace with the All Party Parliamentary British-Latin America Group. We urge all members to make sure their local MP knows about this event and turns up to support you.

Last month's Senderos Famtrip to the Huaorani Ecolodge was a tremendous success Gareth who lead the group has tons of information about our new ventures and innovation at the lodge.
We are also happy to share that the Telegraph piece on the Amazon features the Huaorani Ecolodge as the highlight and a trip of a lifetime in Ecuador!
