Thought Leading since 1977
The Tourism Society is where individuals from across tourism come together (online and offline) for discussion, debate, to share views and knowledge, and to network.
It is the only professional membership organisation that represents all of tourism – across all disciplines, geography and career stages.
The diverse membership ranges from senior executives and academics, to self-employed entrepreneurs and tourism students.
Our existing membership represents tour operators, hotel chains, PR, marketing and representation companies, tourist attractions, national, regional and local tourist boards, restaurants, trade media, charities, consultants, academics, students and educational establishments, among others.
