Issue No. 32 -August / September 2012

Dear members and friends,

As the summer comes to a close, we celebrated with a monumental milestone...the 200th anniversary of the rediscovery of Petra. The winners of the gold coins for the Treasure Hunt game, which was created to promote the anniversary, have been notified and some have already received their gifts.

Trade show season is coming up yet again. JTB will be participating in all the usual major travel & trade shows, starting with Top Resa in Paris, Leisure Exhibition in Moscow, JATA in Tokyo, and TT Warsaw in Poland, all in September.

Another road show will take place in Australia next month.
