ALTO Newsletter Spring 2022

Dear All, I hope you’re well.

This month’s highlight for the association is definitely the opportunity for our members and non-member industry friends to meet in Rome face-to-face! See who’s there, read more about the top quality programmes below and let me know if you’d like to join us – subject to confirmation from the hotel.

Another reason to celebrate in the first quarter of 2022 is that we received a record breaking 8! new membership applications from 3 agencies, 3 schools, 1 association and 1 service provider, please see their profiles below and send them a warm welcome message.

Based on our experience the #intled industry is gaining strength and confidence, but if you would like to see this in tangible numbers, please complete our short anonymous survey and let us produce the latest edition of the ALTO Pulse projection report many of you now use regularly in your business decision making process.

Talking about data collaboration, you can also join or re-activate your profile on the ALTO Trends Barometer tool, where you can follow the change in actual Monday arrival figures around the world – feel free contact me for more information.
