Amadeus and ITT Agree Two-year Exclusive Technology Partnership

Amadeus UK and the Institute of Travel and Tourism (ITT), the UK’s only professional membership body for individuals employed in the travel and tourism industry, today announced an exclusive two-year technology partnership commencing January 2013.

Dr Steven Freudman, ITT Chairman, said: “ITT is dedicated to working on behalf of its industry members by facilitating professional development through the sharing of industry issues. Our goal is to raise and maintain professional standards in the travel industry.

“By working with Amadeus, we see an opportunity to help our members gain a current and in-depth understanding of the changing role that travel technology increasingly plays in our daily lives. This is the first time we have agreed an exclusive partnership with a technology company. It is the meeting of two like-minded organisations, both intent on raising standards in the industry.”
