New membership program for Philippine tourism industry

The Tourism Promotions Board, marketing arm of the Department of Tourism, recently launched the new TPB Membership Program that would offer marketing and promotion benefits and services to members.

Part of TPB’s thrust to promote the Philippines as a world-class travel destination to local and international markets, the new program will forge strong collaboration and partnership with the private sector and tourism stakeholders. TPB will help members in promoting, advocating for and representing their interests for the benefit and sustainable development of their businesses and the tourism industry as a whole.

Membership is open to accommodation establishments, travel and tour services, MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, expositions) facilities and organizers, and health and wellness facilities.

Some of membership benefits include marketing opportunities, brand enhancement, business opportunities, network and capacity-building opportunities, access to information and promotional materials.

To join, interested applicants may go to and fill out the online application form. TPB will send an acknowledgement email and will review the application. The applicant will be asked to submit important documents such as a scanned copy of Department of Tourism Accreditation Certificate, Certificate of Employment for permanent and alternative representative and any other documents deemed relevant by the Secretariat. Annual dues for accepted members is P10,000.00.
