Corporate & Group Membership

The majority of our members join as individuals but we also have a number of companies in membership. The reasons they join vary - they might want to offer benefits to their staff or wish to take advantage of advertising opportunities, or a combination of these and others. We have a few approaches which are outlined below – these can be the starting point of finding the most suitable arrangement for your company, and we will be as flexible as possible so that everyone is happy.

Group Membership

The Tourism Society offers discounted group membership to organisations.

The package includes a minimum of five memberships to assign to selected members of your staff, who each have their own individual membership account set up with personal log in details. You can add any number of members up to a total of 10, all at the same discounted rate per person, though the minimum rate equates to five places.

The basic cost is £480 - 20% off the standard individual membership rate for the first five members.

The group organisation receives a separate listing towards the front of the printed annual membership directory, and each member is treated as an individual with benefits including:

  • Access to the members-only pages of the website www.tourismsociety.org
  • Discount on Tourism Society event tickets
  • Access to members’ discounts

If you wish to go ahead with Group Membership, or would like more information, please contact the executive director at 0203 696 8330 or email membership@tourismsociety.org.

NB - membership of the Tourism Consultants Network is not included in this Group Membership deal.
