NTA is collaborating with the International Tour Management Institute to join ITMI’s annual Symposium with NTA’s Travel Exchange—this year held online as vTREX.

This alliance connects ITMI-certified tour directors and guides with NTA tour operators (and other members) who interview qualified candidates for key roles in their organizations.

“We’ve heard for years from our tour operators that they’re always searching for highly qualified tour directors, and by linking Travel Exchange with ITMI, we’re making it easy for them to find each other.”

—NTA President Catherine Prather, CTP

Here are a few keys to this collaboration:

  • Small groups of ITMI-certified directors and guides will meet with one interviewer at a time.
  • Interviewers will receive job candidates’ résumés in advance.
  • An ITMI education track will be offered alongside other sessions and open to all attendees.
  • During vTREX, ITMI grads will gather during a special happy hour on Tuesday.


ITMI Tour Directors

  • vTREX Registration  |  $295

Tour operators

  • Not attending vTREX as a buyer   |  $250
  • Add-on attendee  |  $125

If a representative of a tour company wishes to attend as an appointment taking buyer ($75 full book or $125 partial book), that delegate may interview tour directors at no charge. However, the cost to bring an additional attendee(s) to conduct interviews is $125.
