The Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) values the expertise, perspective, and storytelling skills that professional travel journalists, editors, bloggers, influencers, photojournalists and broadcast journalists bring to our global community through our programs. Introduced in 2016 and developed with the input of the ATTA’s Adventure Media Advisory Group, Adventure Media Membership provides individual members of the media the opportunity to connect to an expansive network of adventure and sustainable travel community professionals worldwide through official membership.
Adventure Media Membership is offered to qualified media after successful participation in the role of an official media delegate at a recent Adventure Travel World Summit, AdventureELEVATE, AdventureNEXT or AdventureWeek event. (See the “Official Media at ATTA Events FAQs” HERE to learn more about the official media delegate program at events.)
Publishers, hobby bloggers, public relations and marketing agency representatives, or media service providers (video production, content development, advertising, travel apps) are not eligible for the official media delegate role, but are encouraged to attend ATTA events and consider the benefits of joining as an Industry Partner Member.
We encourage those interested in the global adventure travel industry to stay up to date by subscribing to receive Adventure Travel News, or consider attending an ATTA event. AdventureConnect networking events are a great way to start and the community is very welcoming.
Benefits are outlined on the main adventure media membership page.
After two years, active members will be given the the option to renew their membership at no charge and submit updated profile information for qualification. If the member does not opt-in to renew (or is no longer qualified), the membership will expire. If a member is selected and successfully participates at an ATTA event as an official media delegate within the two-year cycle, they will be invited to opt-in to membership again, essentially restarting the renewal date at that time.
Active media members receive direct email notification of ATTA event media application opportunities via the monthly media newsletter. Active media membership does not guarantee an application will be selected for an event.
If your membership is current, you would be listed in the media tab HERE.
