Skål is a professional organization 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. It's members, the industry's managers and executives, meet at local, national and international levels to "Do Business Among Friends".
The first Club was founded in 1932 in Paris by travel managers, following an educational tour of Scandinavia. The idea of international goodwill and friendship grew and, in 1934, the "Association International of Skål Clubs" was formed with Florimond Volckaert as its first President, who is considered the "Father of Skål".
Skål International today has approximately 15,000 members in 400 Clubs throughout over 90 countires. Most activities occur at local, moving up through National Committees, under the umbrella of Skål International, headquartered at the General Secretariat in Torremolinos, Spain.
