SKÅL International

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. Its members, the industry's managers and executives, meet at local, national, regional and international levels to discuss and pursue topics of common interest.

In Finland we have two Skål Clubs, one in Helsinki (Skål International Helsinki ry.) and one in Turku (Skål International Turku ry.). A national committee acts as a common body between these clubs.

SKÅL International Helsinki ry was established 12.11.1948 and it is  Skål Club number 45 in the world! There are over 500 clubs all over the world and members over 20.000.

Club members represent travel trade companies and organizations of Greater Helsinki. There are 88 members in Helsinki Club (June 2017). The Board elected for one year is authorized to run programme which is attracting members and non-members.

Kari Halonen has been in Skål International Helsinki since 2010 and was elected as Helsinki Club President 12.5.2011. In the beginning of 2012 he was also Skål President of Finland for a period of two years. He is now acting as Vice President for Skål Club Helsinki since 2015. He was elected as Skål International Area Norden President for two years 2015 - 2017.
