Group & company memberships
“We are delighted to be able to take-up membership of the Tourism Society this year, increasing our involvement in an organisation which is a major contributor to debates about the future of our industry. The Society provides a good platform for our staff to learn more about the industry and to network with experienced professionals." Sandie Dawe FTS, Former Chief Executive, VisitBritain
The majority of our members join as individuals but we also have a number of companies in membership. The reasons they join vary and can centre on wanting to offer benefits to their staff or wishing to take advantage of advertising opportunities, or a combination of these and others. We have a few basic 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. Just email Gregory Yeoman on email@example.com or call 0203 696 8330 to get the ball rolling.
