ENAT membership.

As a non-profit association we depend entirely on our members paying their fees in order for us to maintain and develop the network and continue promoting inclusive, accessible tourism, both in Europe and around the world.

We would like to remind you that ENAT does not receive any grants or other external sources of funding to maintain its operations. All the funding we receive for projects, for example through EU programmes, is tied to delivering specific results for tourism businesses and other stakeholders. 

A note about ENAT's Sponsors and Partners

ENAT is now in its seventh year, during which time we have developed partnerships with several highly respected tourism organisations, NGOs and private companies.

We are especially pleased to acknowledge the generous "in-kind" support of EWORX S.A., Greece - a Founding Member of ENAT - for maintaining our Website and related online and publishing services.

In 2015 ENAT has signed three important new agreements: 

ReadSpeaker logo  The company ReadSpeaker has granted ENAT a free two-year licence to use their ingenious technology, allowing users to listen to the text of every ENAT Web page with the simple click of a button. We are extremely grateful to ReadSpeaker for their sponsorship and proud to have this useful and elegant feature offering greater accessibility to our site users. Try it, if you haven't already done so! 

Lonely Planet logo  In July, ENAT signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Lonely Planet, the world's largets publisher of travel guides. One of the first fruits of this partnership will be an Online Accessible Travel Guide, prepared by Lonely Planet's Accessibility Editor, Martin Heng. This PDF publication will be offered exclusively on the Lonely Planet and ENAT Websites, free of charge, in January 2016.

FEG logo  In December, ENAT signed a MoU with FEG - the European Federation of Tourist Guide Federations. Under this agreement one of the principle actions will be to provide joint accreditation of the "T-Guide" Continuing Professional Development course for tourist guides, focusing on guiding visitors with learning difficulties or intellectual disabilities. Courses will start in early 2016.
