What is the World Tourism Network?

World Tourism Network is the long-overdue voice of small and medium-size travel and tourism businesses around the world. By uniting our efforts, we bring to the forefront the needs and aspirations of small and medium-sized businesses and their Stakeholders.

World Tourism Network is about business where members are associates 

By bringing together private and public sector members on regional and global platforms, WTN not only advocates for its members but provides them a voice at the major tourism meetings. WTN provides opportunities and essential networking for its members in more than 128 countries.

By working with stakeholders and with tourism and government leaders, WTN seeks to create innovative approaches for inclusive and sustainable tourism sector growth and assist small and medium travel and tourism businesses during both good and challenging times.

It is WTN’s goal to provide its members with a strong local voice while at the same time providing them with a global platform.

WTN provides a valuable political and business voice for small and medium-sized businesses and offers training, consulting, and educational opportunities.

Our “Rebuilding Travel”  initiative is a conversation, an exchange of ideas, and a showcase for the best practices by our members in more than 120 countries.

Our “Tourism Hero” Award recognizes those who go the extra mile serving the travel and tourism community but often get overlooked.

To accomplish these goals WTN encourages the establishment of regional chapters, like the African Tourism Board which will be able to address specific local and global issues within the respective local and global settings.
