Some 15% of eTN’s overall 230,000+ travel industry subscribers receive eTN Rush, an hourly online publication that has the most timely email updates available for travel professionals and tourism leaders. eTurboNews achieved this status because it follows the news from its source and understands the industry well. A team of writers and eTN ambassadors from around the globe contribute to eTN’s unique content touching on news about travel, tourism, the environment, and human rights.
In a recent poll when eTurboNews asked readers about their favorite personality in the travel and tourism industry, so far the number one person named is Taleb Rifai, Secretary General of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). It was pointed out this was for his work that has brought world leaders from the world of tourism together as was never seen before.
 
Number two is not surprisingly an eTN favorite, the Minister of Tourism from the Seychelles, Alain St.Ange. His knowledge of tourism as an industry and his eloquence and friendly nature have made him a favorite tourism minister. He remains a person who is today seen as a sought-after speaker at tourism conferences all across the globe.
 
Number three is Hiran Cooray, Chairman of Jetwing Hotels in Sri Lanka. Hiran is the immediate past President of the Tourist Hotels Association of Sri Lanka, and past Chairman of the PATA Sri Lanka Chapter. He is presently on the board of Small Luxury Hotels of the World representing the Asia Pacific region.
