About ITM


What We Do

The Institute of Travel Management (ITM) is dedicated to supporting and developing all those involved in corporate travel. 

Established in 1956, we are proud to represent over 5,000 business travel buyers and suppliers across the UK and Ireland.

We believe in providing the best possible support, information and opportunities to enable our members to achieve best practice in managing travel spend effectively, minimise the risk to their travellers, and demonstrate the effectiveness and profitability of managed travel to their organisations.

Our Purpose

To unite and empower the UK and Ireland's business travel community, our membership organisation fosters connections, knowledge-sharing, and inspiration through impactful content and dynamic networking opportunities

Our Mission

By championing collaboration and continuous learning, our not-for-profit organisation aims to elevate the capabilities of travel management professionals and the linked supply chain. By inspiring innovation and best practice, educating members through cutting-edge insights and professional development opportunities, we’ll contribute to the growth, resilience, and success of the industry in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Travel Management

The cost of travel (T&E) tends to be a corporation’s second largest controllable expense and few procurement categories are as complex, dynamic and highly emotive as travel. Travel management is the strategic approach that balances employee needs with corporate goals by adding value and minimising costs.

Whether you procure (as a buyer ) or provide (as a supplier ) travel services, our tailored training programme, comprehensive learning resources, and industry-leading networking events can help you achieve best practice to optimise your travel programme, and form stronger relationships within the business travel community.


Our 5,000+ members represent the profession across many categories:

  • Accommodation (Hotels, HBA's, Serviced Apartments)
  • Aviation
  • Creative Industries (Media, Broadcasting, Marketing and Publishing)
  • Ground Transport (Car Hire/Chauffeur, Rail etc)
