LEADING THE RECOVERY

We’ve been supporting tourism in Europe since 1989.

ETOA is the most diverse community of European tourism suppliers and buyers – also over 100 local, regional and national tourism management organisations. Our lobbying and policy and work at all levels of government has strong relevance to destinations, from sustainability to strategic recovery funding, travel restrictions to safety protocols and market reassurance.

Our destination-focused activity includes #Destination2030 webinars showcasing local strategy, Masterclasses providing demand-led insight among local supply chain, targeted promotion and B2B events using ETOA’s Celestina Event Services which delivers market-leading return on investment, providing face-to-face appointments with buyers currently unable to travel.

To ensure maximum market access for Europe’s tourism ecosystem, exceptionally in 2021 we have offered pre-qualified buyers membership on a voluntary contribution basis: leisure business will drive the recovery, and many of our buyers also deliver MICE business.

We are a member-driven association. When you join ETOA you are becoming part of an ambitious community whose members support each other and share a common purpose and passion to make tourism better.

What are our members saying about us:

There are multiple ETOA sponsored events that that connect us to local vendors in all the countries we operate our tours in. It helps to make our tour programs stronger and is nice to know that we are working with other trusted members as well. Heather Lawless, Tour Operations Product Manager at Rick Steves’ Europe

We joined ETOA in 2003, mainly to support our Sales & Marketing activity, but over the years we highly benefitted from this fast-expanding, worldwide network of well-established companies. We regularly attend the workshops allowing us to put together meetings that would otherwise take me weeks to get through. Guendalina Scavia, Director of Sales & Marketing at Hotel Invest Italiana
