U.S. Travel Association’s Experience Network and the National Tour Association (NTA) have entered a strategic partnership to provide valuable educational opportunities to its members.
"We're very excited about this recent collaboration with NTA," said Doug Killian, senior director of international communications at Mall of America and the chair of U.S. Travel's Experience Network. "Our council hopes to build on this relationship with the tour association, and to continue to provide engaging, educational opportunities that will benefit both of our memberships."
Both organizations hope this new relationship will continue to bridge their networks and industry members at large.
"NTA members know that our association provides top-quality educational sessions, so a partnership with U.S. Travel’s Experience Network is the perfect fit," said Pam Inman, NTA president. "I’m excited that we can work together to bring meaningful, relevant information targeted to our supplier attendees and another venue where they can learn and share ideas."
