Steven Howard - Editor / Founder
Our editor (and founder), Steven Howard, worked for two of the largest banks in the world before entering the travel industry in Asia over 20 years ago.
Steven has been Publisher of ASIA Travel Trade magazine - the oldest travel trade magazine in Asia, and Frequent Traveller magazine - the leading corporate consumer travel magazine in Asia.
He has also worked as Group Publisher of Panacea Publishing Asia, managing well known regional travel magazines such as Mix! - Asia's Creative Meetings Magazine, Business Traveller China and Business Traveller Asia Pacific.
Steven is also a professional photographer and videographer. Not only has he conducted well over over five hundred (500) exclusive video interviews with Ministers of Tourism from different countries, CEOs, MDs and other leading figures from within the travel and aviation industries, but has had his photography published in magazines around the world, and even a movie!
He has a passion for travel, cycling, sports in general, as well as the immense benefits that sport tourism can bring to a destination, both in the short and long term.
Being a firm believer that 5-star does not always mean best, he loves to discover new places, hotels, ideas and concepts, and to share those finds with readers.
Never one to shy away from getting his hands dirty, he is as happy sat in the cold rain taking pictures of an event, as he is sipping the finest wines, whiskies and Champagnes in the executive floor of a true 5-star hotel.
Future Changes to ASIATravelTips.com / TravelNewsAsia.com
Over the years it has been pretty difficult keeping abreast with all the tech changes related to websites, especially in the mobile and social media side of the business. When we started, things like WordPress, Joomla, FB and Twitter did not exist. Our goal at the beginning was to do the travel news alongside direct hotel reservations as well as useful tips on the best bars, restaurants and hotels etc from within Asia Pacific. We were amongst the first to do that, and were very successful. Now however, the direct hotel reservations have been cut entirely, and we no longer update the 'tips' side of the website as our main focus is travel news - both industry and consumer, but mainly industry - from airlines and aviation in general, to hotels and industry events. Out goal is to soon switch the domain from www.asiatraveltips.com to just www.travelnewsasia.com entirely so that there is less confusion. How we are going to do that, and what will be dropped added or changed is still to be decided. In the meantime, thank you for visiting and we hope you find the website useful.
