One fine body…
Our story began with building and maintaining the definitive reference information resource aiding friends group travel. That data was put into use with the launch of TRIP in the Spring of 1993. The quarterly travel guide served as a Travel Reference Information Planner for group planners, mailing to 60,000+ known planners each quarter. The subject-specific Keeper Reference evolved into the TRIPinfo Quarterly Digital Magazine.
The print guide audience migrated to TRIPinfo.com when it launched as the 1st USA Travel Reference Information Portal in 1996. Today, 45,000+ group planners use TRIPinfo.com each month for logistics and details research for group bookings in the USA. They are group, tour, agent, team meeting, event, religious, reunion, sport, student, wedding & International planners – each booking 10x-375x/year the average family on travel.
By 2000 the company began its weekly email newsletter, Internet Travel Monitor, sent to ~15,000 group travel planners each week. The 3 components of the TRIPinfo Digital Platform are now TRIPinfo.com Online + TRIPinfo Weekly Newsletter + TRIPinfo Quarterly Digital Magazine. They work together as a comprehensive reference for group planners to use during all facets of their trips.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To research and present quality USA travel information - to travel professionals booking volume - via our website, maps, email newsletters, magazine and emerging tools.
