The Resilience Council is the go-to resilience expert for anyone in the travel and tourism industry. 

The Resilience Council provides a platform for professionals from various industries to share information and best practices regarding resilience, crises and disasters - both man-made and natural - in the context of tourism. The Resilience council is partnered with multiple governments around the world, including Jordan, South Africa, Jamaica, Greece and Nepal, in order to host events which provide this forum.

These events provide benefits for all sectors touching the travel and tourism industry, as well as the industry itself, ranging from governments and NGOs to suppliers and academia providing valuable real-time experience and information through comprehensive partnership programmes. The goal of The Resilience Council for 2019 is to engage with not only the corporate travel and tourism industry, but also the leisure sector, proactively partnering with industry suppliers in order to become the quintessential resilience strategy platform.

The Resilience Council was created following the success of the International Travel and Tourism Crisis Management Summit, which hosted its first event in London in 2016. ITCMS grew from 2016, becoming a yearly event and paving the way for the Resilience Through Tourism Summit, held in Amman, Jordan in 2018.

The Resilience Council works in partnership with leading industry figures and organisations to evolve our strategy for future events and initiatives.

The Council is co-chaired by:
