Since launching in May 2014, the Toronto Chapter has grown its community to 336 members, hosted eleven networking events, participated in several industry panels, and introduced its first mentorship connection.

“YTP-TO is part of a global movement to connect the world’s passionate travel and tourism individuals, from travel agents and social media pros to marketers, graphic designers and tour guides,” says Melissa Medeiros, PR Manager for the Toronto Chapter and founding board member. “This is an incredible milestone for the community and we are thrilled to have Tourism Australia on board to host this celebratory event.”

 YTP-TO was the second chapter to launch in Canada, and the third international chapter of the global organization, which is based in New York City. Today, Young Travel Professionals has grown into twelve chapters across the USA, Canada and UK. The organization hosted its first Toronto event at the Ritz-Carlton’s DEQ Terrace and Lounge on May 26, 2014.

YTP provides members with networking opportunities and is completely free to join. Members attend monthly events at the city’s best venues, have access to a thriving online community and mentorship program, and are invited to join exclusive FAM trips and special events around the world.
