Real people creating real relationships: sounds old fashioned, doesn’t it? One of NTA’s founding principles is a commitment to facilitating member interaction. By that we mean face-to-face interaction, not just an e-greeting and a name. In an organization with more than 2,000 members from 40 different nations, getting together is no mean feat. That we do it, often and with great success, is testament to our members’ dedication to our industry and to each other.
For travel professionals, NTA events create invaluable business opportunities, learning and development opportunities and friendships that last a lifetime. NTA creates events that never go out of fashion.
