Every year, ITT organises a variety of popular events which enable Members to learn more about their industry at the same time as networking in both formal and informal settings.
Annual events include: the Members-only overseas Conference, President’s Dinner, Golf Tournament, Chairman’s Summer Cocktails and Christmas Cocktails.
Throughout the year ITT runs Odyssey Suppers at the House of Commons and a session at World Travel Market. ITT endeavours to find different ways to satisfy the increasing need for events.
ITT networking events are extremely popular and tend to sell out very quickly. New events are being added all the time so keep checking this section of the website for updates.

Once again ITT took an active part in this year’s World Travel Market.
The ITT Members’ Lounge at WTM was a hive of activity – possibly even busier than it was last year! One of our Lounge sponsors, Travel Uni, made the most of the busy atmosphere by holding awards presentations, and also attracting attention with a human-sized bumble bee!
