Our membership framework was introduced in 2010 to provide a clear identification for group travel specialist professionals, benefits for them for being involved and an opportunity to relate collectively to other parts of the tourism industry.

The membership fee is £195 + VAT per person per year.

To be eligible for membership, potential members will simply need to identify their own activities covering the field of group travel either as an individual, or within an organisation. It is expected that organisations will see the value of supporting their lead group travel specialists in membership, as they have been in facilitating their attendance at our events to date.

  • Two free places a year at our seminars
  • GTBF updates in GTO magazine
  • A quartely e-newsletter
