Skål is a professional organisation of tourism leaders around the world, promoting global tourism and friendship. It is the only international group uniting all branches of the travel and tourism industry. Skål members, the industry's managers and executives, meet at local, national and international levels to discuss and pursue topics of common interest.
The first club was founded in Paris in 1932 by Travel Trade managers who had been on an educational tour of Scandinavia.
The idea of International goodwill and friendship grew and in 1934 the Association Internationale des Skål Clubs was formed with Florimond Volckaert as its first President who is considered "The Father of Skål".
From that modest beginning, Skål International has approximately 18000 members in more than 525 clubs throughout 87 nations. Most activities occur at local levels, moving up through National committees under the umbrella of Skål International, headquartered at The General Secretariat in Torremolinos, Spain.
Skål International is governed by an Executive committee of seven members, elected by the delegates to the General Assembly, which is held each October/November in conjunction with the Skål International World Congress.
For further information or to enquire how to become a Skål member please contact our National Secretary.
