Why you should join World Tourism Network?

The World Tourism Network (WTN) is the long-overdue voice of small and medium-sized travel and tourism businesses with more than 17,000 members and observers in 133 countries.

How are SMEs getting a regional and global voice with the World Tourism Network?

WTN invites SMEs, major stakeholders in the sector, and the public sector (governments) to join its network for dialogue with the interest of the Small and medium-sized travel business in mind.

Advocacy is a major role WTN has, and this is done through a network and discussion groups by an increasing number of local or national chapter working hand in hand with other chapters and the WTN global headquarter and its advocacy campaigns. WTN seeks to create innovative approaches for inclusive and sustainable tourism. Our Chapters are our Inspiration.

Our partners and strategic partners are our strength. Such partners include members from all sectors of the travel and tourism business, including major trade shows, such as World Travel Market, New York International Travel Show, IMEX, and of course WTN’s own events such as TIME, regional and international workshops, training sessions and outreach.

Our chat and discussion groups provide access to a state-of-the-art network of experts, fellow members, media partners, and supporters.

Our “Rebuilding Travel”  initiative is a conversation, an exchange of ideas, and a showcase for the best practices by our members in 133  countries.

Our think tanks are the basis of how we network and communicate with stakeholders to make a difference and get our voices heard.
