“UKinbound membership has become an important and pleasant part of our business life. It helps with industry insight in general, it creates business opportunities and it also allows us to meet and network with the extended incoming tourism family across the UK. Our staff value the various workshops, fam trips and other networking events, enabling them to build trade relationships.”

“China Travel Outbound is a big fan of UKinbound. It has been like gold dust for our business. The networking events and the excellent Annual Convention have become vital to our sales and marketing strategy.
As a small, high-growth business, all spend has to be carefully considered and generate a worthwhile return on investment. We met three of our clients through UKinbound, and have found the team to be extremely welcoming, friendly, and helpful in making connections and distributing news about our company.”
Helena Beard – Managing Director, China Travel Outbound
“We are in our third year as a member of UKinbound, and my only regret is that we did not join earlier. We have made new contacts, resulting in new business, which is increasing year on year.
Our membership of UKinbound also evokes a sense of trust amongst overseas operators, which helps us work together easily from the beginning. The team also keep us up to date with all industry information and changes that are vital in the day to day running of our business.”

“Our UKinbound membership has played a huge part in the success of our venture into the tourism market, so much so that I don’t think we would have succeeded without UKinbound. By attending events and networking across the UK we have managed to secure and build relationships that have delivered a return way above our expectations.
After just over two years of membership we have been able to meet partners of all sizes across a very wide range of markets, that have helped us over achieve our sales objectives.”
