AGENDA: November 15 – Day 1 Industry Insights & How Behavioral Economics Can Drive Better Adventure Marketing

The first day of the event opens with an introduction to the global adventure tourism industry – learn about which trends are shaping adventure travel today and in the future, and how they relate to the specific opportunities and challenges in Sweden. This is followed by a short facilitated strategic planning component in which participants come together to share and explore opportunities and challenges for Sweden. A key benefit of this session is that it brings key players in the local industry together to align on priorities and focus for advancing the adventure travel economy. The afternoon offers participants the chance to delve into adventure travel marketing through the lens of behavioral economics. In a lecture session followed by a practical workshop, participants learn about new marketing concepts and have the opportunity to test ideas.
