New membership program for Philippine tourism industry

The Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) Philippines, the marketing and promotions arm of the Department of Tourism (DOT), launched the new TPB Membership Program that aims to provide marketing services and benefits to its members for the sustainable development of their businesses and the Philippine tourism industry as a whole.

As part of TPB’s thrust to promote the Philippines as a world-class travel destination to local and international markets, the membership program will forge strong collaboration and partnership with the private sector and tourism stakeholders.

Regional sales calls were conducted in the cities Tuguegarao, Coron, Legazpi, Naga, Dumaguete, Cebu, Zamboanga, Davao and General Santos since November 2019 to present various membership benefits which include marketing opportunities, brand enhancement, business opportunities, network and capacity-building opportunities, access to information and promotional materials.

Membership is open to DOT-accredited establishments related to accommodations, travel and tour services, MICE (meetings, incentive travel, conventions, exhibitions/events) facilities and organizers, and health and wellness facilities.

To join, interested applicants may go to https://www.tpb.gov.ph/membership-registration/ and fill out the online application form. Annual dues for accepted members is P10,000.00.

For more information, applicants may call TPB at 8525-9318 loc. 239 or email tpbmembership@tpb.gov.ph
