"Launched in 2005, the Travel Industry Club serves as an independent business club, sporting in excess of 750 members, all of whom leaders of the travel industry in Germany and its affiliated companies in the value chain, and therefore a valuable partner for HSMAI Region Europe," says Ingunn Hofseth, President and CEO of HSMAI Region Europe, adding:
"Germany is one of our key markets and we would like to reach out to all segments of the industry in Germany with our European and international network and competence. We can think of no better way to achieve that than by embarking on a closer partnership with our colleagues in TIC."
HSMAI Region Europe primarily covers the entire region, including Germany, with workshops, general manager forums, webinars, awards, networking, seminars and conferences for the entire travel and hospitality, as well as the Europe's growing event industry. There are also two new, small and informal, activities taking place in some major cities across Europe in the near future: HSMAI Region Europe Connect for networking, and HSMAI Region Europe Special Interest Meetings on various topics.
Both the Travel Industry Club and HSMAI Region Europe base much of their activities on networking, professional development, social gatherings, symposia and recognition of excellence, all of which strongly enhanced through this brand-new alliance. The first co-branded activity the "Hospitality Symposium" will take place at the Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt Gravenbruch on Tuesday July 12th.
"Reaching out with a more international approach in the near future HSMAI Region Europe is an ideal organisation to partner with. With their long-standing international experience they are enlarging the partnership with valuable insights that all of our members will profit from. We are very much looking forward to our first international cooperation," says Dirk Bremer, President of the Travel Industry Club.
The Travel Industry Club connects decision makers from the entire leisure and business travel industry. The club of the "Travel Makers" was established in 2005 and soon the idea to create a networking platform for decision makers and leading managers from the travel industry has become a success story: Currently the club has over 750 members.
The diversity of the travel industry reflects itself in our activities. The Travel Industry Club sees itself as the "Think-Tank" of the travel branch. We are innovative, like to look forward and challenge the norms of the industry.
The topics offered by the Travel Industry Club not only cover a wide spectrum but are also future orientated. This is reflected in our events calendar, which now features over 50 events per year, which amongst others include: Member Lounges, Award Nights, Networking Events and Symposia, For further information please visit www.travelindustryclub.de
