About the Indoor Tanning Association

Founded in 1999, the Indoor Tanning Association (ITA) represents thousands of indoor tanning manufacturers, distributors, ita posterfacility owners and members from other supporting industries. The professional indoor tanning industry employs more than 160,000 people and generates an economic impact of more than $5 billion annually while promoting a responsible message about moderate tanning and sunburn prevention.

The ITA was founded to protect the freedom of individuals to acquire a suntan, via natural or artificial light. Through the leadership efforts of our members, we seek to work with federal and state governments to ensure that this freedom is not restricted. The ITA also strives to strengthen and advance our position through research and education efforts that promote responsible indoor tanning and teach tanners a life-long skin care regimen.

As part of itsservice to the industry and the tanning public, the ITA tracks legislative developments across the country that potentially have a bearing on indoor tanning activities. In addition , the ITA has formed a Political Action Committee (PAC) to advocate on behalf of the indoor tanning industry at the federal level. Members of the ITA, member company executives and managers, and their spouses may all contribute to the ITA PAC.
