"Being included with the likes of Condé Nast, The Economist and Harvard Business Review in Folio’s 2018 honorees in our first year of publication is hugely gratifying and testament to the hard work of the ASTA staff, especially our Communications Director Erika Richter," said Eben Peck, ASTA Executive Vice President, Advocacy. “We launched Travel Advisor earlier this year with the goal of better serving our members and travel industry partners with relevant and compelling content.
