About Uganda Tourism Association
The Uganda Tourism Association is
the umbrella association that brings together all tourism associations in
Uganda. The current associations include the Association of Uganda Tour
Operators, Uganda Safari Guides Association, Uganda hotel owners Association,
the Uganda travel agents Association, and Uganda community Tourism Association.
These associations altogether represent tour operators, travel agents,
accommodation facilities, tour guides, community-based organizations, and
membership is steadily increasing.
The Uganda Tourism Association does
not get involved with the daily operations of any tourism institution,
organization or travel business Association and does not intend to duplicate
any services rendered by such organizations, institutions or associations. UTA
provides a unified industry voice to articulate to government and others the
industry-wide major issues of national significance.
UTA assists with strategic
intervention when by agreement the industry requires lobbying or advocacy at
the highest level on the main issues impacting negatively on tourism growth and
development. The Association strives to engage with captains of industry,
political leaders, innovators, development agencies, institutions of higher
learning, and individuals who are knowledgeable to be experts in different
disciplines, fields of specialization and professions.
