IATM is the professional association of experienced Tour Managers. We were founded over forty years ago and today we have members all over the world. IATM represents the views of Tour Managers at national, European and international levels and is lobbying for full professional recognition.
IATM provides a dispute procedure upon legitimate written complaint and, when necessary, operates a disciplinary function over its members or a defence procedure on their behalf.
We organise educational tours, visits and programmes to promote and encourage the highest standards of performance and knowledge among its members.
IATM publishes regular newsletters and an annual membership handbook. We hold an annual meeting where members can exchange views, help form Association policy and attend seminars and lectures.
IATM has a social aspect and cooperates fully with other trade organisations.

In 1962, 12 European Tour Managers met together in London to found the International Association of Tour Managers.
Their purpose: to exchange information, views, experiences and difficulties encountered. At this stage, the Association was little more than a social club. Today, IATM is truly an "International Association", with members throughout Australasia, Europe, India, Israel, North and South America, and Taiwan.
In 1983 IATM was divided into Regions to cope with the worldwide growth in membership. Each Regional Chairman is appointed to the IATM Board of Directors. This arrangement allows for a measure of local autonomy and for attention to be given to local needs and interests.
-"Its Fantastic to see how much we grew over the years."
Since 1984 IATM has been actively involved representing the interests of Tour Managers to the institutions of the EU, specifically working toward recognition of the profession of Tour Manager. In 1992 the EU approved a syllabus for the training of professional Tour Managers which became the basis of the Certificate of Tour Management (CTM). The CTM examination is open to Active members of IATM and affords them the opportunity to gain a qualification which recognizes their professional commitment and ability.
