ITMI joins industry leaders including the Carlson Companies, Sabre Holdings, Hilton Worldwide and Delta Airlines in fighting modern day slavery.

As a leader in the education and certification of professional tour directors, guides and tourism industry workers, it is our responsibility to inform our students and partners about this global crime – said Ted Bravos, CEO of ITMI.

We are delighted to welcome ITMI as a signatory to the Code of Conduct – says Carol Smolenski, Executive Director of ECPAT-USA.

This will ensure that travel and tourism students learn from their very introduction to the industry that child sex tourism is unacceptable and illegal everywhere. ITMI’s leadership in providing training will spread the word far and wide.
