Professional development through industry lead training courses and thriving online communities.

Industry Lead Training

IIR Partners with leading industry trade bodies and organisations to deliver industry specific online learning academies. Our first strategic partnership is with The World Duty Free Council to develop and deliver the The Professional Certificate of Duty Free and Travel Retail.

Community Based Learning

Learning from the experience of  your peers and fellow industry professionals plays a key role in developing professional skills. At IIR we specialise in developing thriving online communities to help industry professional achieve this. Our first online community is The Global Travel Retail Community

Global Travel Retail Community

The ‘Global Travel Retail (GTR) Community’ is a unique, one of a kind platform that was created to bring together like-minded people within the industry. The community will specialise in the development and growth of ambitious and committed industry professionals.

Unlike other social media or email channels, our community aims to be more than just a travel retail newsfeed and instead provide deeper experiences for all of its members. The relevance of an online or virtual community has never been more significant, as we witness a global shift towards online and digital support network.
