The purpose of the virtual association will be: to increase the level and the capacity of participants of the association by facilitating the exchange of information, experience; accumulation of data on goods and services of tourism enterprises, which are a composite tourist product of the Poltava region as a tourist destination; ensuring the interrelation between the participants of the association at the local, regional, and national levels for the promotion of tourism services, defining the range of activities where the interrelations between the participants of the association are necessary (transportation, organization of excursions, leisure, provision of medical and recreational services, advertising like that). Thus, the introduction of the proposed virtual association of tourist enterprises will ensure the joint coordinated activities of all participants in the tourism services market, other institutions and organizations and public authorities on the basis of the integration approach. At the level of a tourist enterprise, the functioning of the proposed association will solve problems of information and marketing support, which will help to improve the effectiveness of their management. A promising direction of the study is the development of the organizational and economic mechanism of a virtual association of tourist enterprises in the Poltava region.
