Welcome to the Tourism Management Institute (TMI) - the destination management section of Tourism Society.
Find out here about TMI's Events, becoming a member of TMI, developing your career through TMI recognised undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and events/seminars for tourism professionals.
Download presentations given at recent events such as the recent TMI Annual Convention, held in the historic city of Durham, read the fortnightly TMEye e-newsletter and find out about the latest tourism job vacancies. Full details of upcoming TMI events can also be found at www.tmi-events.org.uk
You can also search for Suppliers offering services to Destination Managers from web designers to consultants, or browse the extensive library of documents, articles and news items.
Judging by the number of ‘out-of-office’ messages received over the last fortnight, members have been enjoying a great Easter … so we’ve managed to extend the Early Bird deadline for May’s ‘Hot Topic’ conference until 5pm on Tuesday 29th April – a week today.
Bookings have been coming in fast, attracted by the variety of destinations presenting case studies, but also by the 3 views from Overseas presented by William Bakker, Mathieu Hoeberigs and Fatima Gonzalez. Their presentations are bound to open our eyes to new opportunities – as well as to different interpretations on the whole ‘State Aid’ issue.
The presentations from e-Strategy, CACI, i360 Experience and South West Coast Path also promise to present new perspectives to delegates.
Full details and online booking are at www.tmi-events.org.uk
Once a year, we invite nominations for election to FTMI. This upgrade is to recognise a Full Member’s significant contribution to the Institute and to destination management, as well as their experience and high degree of professionalism. To nominate yourself or a TMI colleague, please download and complete the Fellow application form and return it in confidence to your President, Neil McCollum MTMI, by close of play on Friday 2 May.
UCB is reviewing its undergraduate tourism courses, which currently have TMI Recognition, and they are keen that their courses provide the information, background and skills that industry needs. Please take 5 minutes to complete their questionnaire and help ensure that these students graduate with industry ready skills and knowledge.
