Support tour guides around the world by sponsoring the Summit!

Join us for Meet the Tour Operator Day.

Whether you’re a tour operator, or an industry business looking to get in front of guides (from booking platforms to apps looking for tour content creators, etc.), the Global Guide Summit has an entire day dedicated to showing your off to 400+ guides around the world.

There’s no cost to participate but spots are limited (unless you’d like to purchase an enhanced ticket).

Consider sponsorship.

Get in front of local tour guides around the world and have your brand visible as a supporter of an event meant to empower guides.

Sponsorship perks will continue to live on the site long after the event as guides return to watch event recordings, interact with each other, and update their profiles.  Past sponsors include tour operators, services providers, and brands.

Meet the Tour Operator FAQ

The Global Guide Summit is a global event meant to help local tour guides everywhere learn about and make new contacts as the return to travel continues.

Do I have to be "hiring" guides right now?

No, not at all.

This day is meant to be a space for guides to get to know the different companies that are out there. There is no pressure to hire.

What kinds of companies can attend?

This event is geared towards companies that work with local tour guides: tour operators, DMCs, online marketplaces, OTAs, reservation technology companies, virtual tour companies, etc.

We also encourage other companies who aren’t “tour operators” but are looking to hire from a pool of locals that know their city well such as apps looking for travel content creators.

Why should I sponsor?

When the travel industry suffers, guides suffer deeper as they are typically the ones left without any resources or networks. the Global Guide Summit is meant to empower them.

FAQ

The 2022 Global Guide Summit is a virtual conference, taking place entirely online. It’s hosted on a platform called Campfire, where attendees can participate in sessions, network with other attendees and companies, and build their guide profiles.

We anticipate a predominantly North & South American and European audience to watch live, given the time zone of the schedule. However all guides will have access to all sessions and marketing even if they don’t attend live via access to the marketplaces and recordings.

Last year’s event had guides attend from Asia, the Middle East, and more.  And we have over 600 replays of recorded content.

Our attendees are local tour guides, tour leaders/directors, museum docents, trekking guides, content creators, and more.

In general you’ll find guides that attend the Global Guide Summit are actively looking to improve themselves, grow their skillset, modernize their profession, and be travel industry savvy.

The Global Guide Summit is organized and executed by the Global Guide Alliance.

All proceeds go back into the Global Guide Alliance to run future events and initiatives for guides.

We’d love for you to catch the sessions!

As a Sponsor or Tour Operator Enhanced ticket holder, you’ll have a full conference ticket which gives you access to the Education Days, Meet the Tour Operator Day and all after-hours activities such as tours.

If you can’t catch them live, all session recordings are available to view at your leisure after the conference has ended.
