Tourism Accommodation Australia TAA & Australian Hotels Association (WA) AHA(WA)

The Australian Hotels Association has further committed to leading the industry with a re-naming and restructure of the National AHA Accommodation Division. "Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA)" is the national identity to publicly represent and lobby specifically for accommodation hotels separately from the AHA's general hospitality members.

Tourism Accommodation Australia TAA & Australian Hotels Association (WA) AHA(WA) Hotel Rooms, Lobby, Conference Room The AHA has represented the interests of Western Australia's Accommodation hotels since the early 1880's, and has operated a dedicated accommodation hotels division since 1958. Tourism Accommodation Australia recognises the need for a clear representative voice for Australia's accommodation sector.

As an accommodation property you receive membership with both the AHA and TAA simultaneously. TAA is a nationally identifiable entity to focus on accommodation sector issues and will provide a dedicated voice at a national level, together with the AHA's strong network of existing State based Associations.

The majority of issues impacting our industry are determined at both the National and State levels. Within Western Australia, we focus on issues such as state taxation, tourism marketing, events, health regulations, fire safety and more and we will continue the necessary work with the WA Government and State politicians. In addition to the resources allocated by TAA nationally the AHA WA also monitors federal parliamentary issues that may impact on WA and we regularly are engaged in lobbying in Canberra.

The AHA and TAA are Australia's only truly national hotel accommodation representative body and continue to provide a targeted response to the complex and rapidly evolving issues facing the Australian and Western Australian accommodation industry.
