Help Us Change The World
The Tourism Academy provides high-level innovative education to a worldwide audience of tourism professionals, agents, operators, suppliers, destinations, and entrepreneurs on six continents.
We do this by encouraging the cross-pollination of ideas and making critical transformative, inspiring, and engaging education easily accessible across our many platforms.
We’re always looking for partners that share our vision, believe in travel’s profound ability to bridge cultural divides, and want to help us empower the travel community.
Who is Our Audience
Our global audience is made up of over 150,000+ tourism professionals working at more than 32,000 travel enterprises. These businesses range from enormous travel conglomerates to teeny-tiny agencies and top tier destination marketing organizations to the multitude of product & service providers who make it happen.
We’ve built trusted relationships with our audience through years of in-person events, social outreach, digital strategies, and affiliate networking. Our major markets – North America, Europe, and Central/South America – make up over half of our audience.
Why Become A Sponsor
Our audience is ready for you to share their passion for travel, improve their lives, benefit their communities, and build a sustainable future. They seek knowledge and tools to become more effective, productive and happy.
The future of business (and travel) belongs to those who never stop learning and turn that knowledge into innovation.
You can capitalize on these huge market trends:
Travel experts are in demand
Market uncertainty, constantly changing regulations, and pent up demand drive travellers to the experts. Travellers engage with agents and tour operators to match them with suitable, safe destinations and qualified suppliers. Agents make travel more satisfying for consumers by managing complicated airline arrangements, local health advisories, and having contingency plans ready.
The Learning Gap
Traditional training is time consuming, costly, and terribly ineffective. An overwhelming percentage of content offered to the tourism professional was created without regard to fundamental principles of adult learning, instructional design, and technology. We’ve changed that!
Accelerated demand for efficiency
Online & Social Learning
Online learning, especially that which is self-paced and available to the student on-demand, is continuing to grow. Travel professionals around the globe have access to high-quality education when and where they need it.
