The Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs Hits 500th Member Milestone
Member Increase Primarily Driven by Annual GIFTE Membership

The Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs recently welcomed its 500th member into the GIFTE family. Founded less than three years ago, the industry’s premier marketing education organization continues to grow at a clipping rate.

“Our recent membership milestone highlights how GIFTE has become a leader in the marketing education sphere of the travel industry,” said CEO Meredith Hill. “While it’s great to know that we’re growing at a fast rate, what’s most rewarding is realizing how many travel professionals have really benefited from GIFTE’s services.”

While GIFTE offers a variety of programs and products, from the self-paced, e-learning course Make Money Selling Travel Blueprint to group and private coaching, the increase in GIFTE members has largely been driven by travel professionals signing up for annual GIFTE membership, which is GIFTE’s foundational program. GIFTE members receive a host of benefits, including access to a highly active and collaborative private GIFTE forum and monthly Q&A calls with Meredith. On these calls, Meredith dispenses her best advice on business development and marketing strategy to members, sometimes leading to million dollar ideas.

One of the most popular annual GIFTE membership benefits is the monthly Marketing Expert Teleclass series. On this teleclass, GIFTE brings in marketing gurus from outside the travel industry to share their insider secrets that help GIFTE members monetize their passion for travel. Past popular marketing experts include renowned referral expert Bob Burg, Women’s Prosperity Network founder Nancy Matthews, national award winning pioneer in the field of personal growth Yvonne Oswald, and sought after media source Kathy Caprino, who has appeared in over 100 newspaper, television, and radio outlets including ForbesWoman, the Huffington Post, and AARP. New GIFTE members are invited to not only join upcoming Marketing Expert Teleclasses, but they also receive access to an archive of over 30 past teleclass recordings.

GIFTE has recently changed its subscription model for its foundational membership program to better suit the needs of its members. GIFTE membership is now available as a monthly subscription at $19.99/month, or as a yearly subscription at $197/year. To learn more about GIFTE membership, visit

Aside from its members, GIFTE has an estimated weekly reach of over 16,000, primarily reaching contacts through its weekly e-zine and various social media presences.

The Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs was founded in 2011 by Meredith Hill in response to a desperate need for support, resources and tools for the committed travel consultant. As the fastest growing industry organization dedicated to marketing education for travel professionals, GIFTE’s mission is to revolutionize the way travel advisors market and grow their businesses. GIFTE’s products and programs provide all the tools, resources and support travel professionals need to reach a whole new level of success in travel – one that includes making more money while making a difference in the lives of their clients.
