ITMI Symposium in Nashville

The International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) will hold its annual symposium in Nashville, Tennessee, January 26 – 30, 2014. For twenty-seven years, the ITMI Symposium has attracted industry professionals from around the world.

It is the only travel industry conference that brings together domestic and international tour operators, tour directors and guides, event planners, destination marketing organizations, travel writers, and other industry stakeholders for interactive seminars and networking.

“We are excited to showcase the unique attractions and breathtakingly beautiful natural wonders that Tennessee has to offer,” said Ted Bravos, CEO of ITMI. “Tourism professionals from around the world will be learning about attractions and points of interest as well as hotels and restaurants that can be added to tour itineraries. The connections that are made during the symposium will positively impact Nashville and the State of Tennessee for years to come.”

The ITMI Symposium attracts leading tour operators such as World Strides, Smithsonian Student Travel, Destination America, Adventures by Disney, Tauck World Discovery, Globus Family of Brands, Cosmos, Collette Vacations, Princess and Holland America Cruise lines to name but a few.

“It is wonderful to welcome ITMI to Nashville this year,” said Assistant Commissioner Paula Hankins, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development. “Tourism is one of the most important industries in our state, which makes us always ready to roll out Tennessee’s special brand of hospitality to the travel and trade industry.”
