Join us at the 2017 Outdoor Retailer Winter Show on Wednesday, January 11th from 5:30-7:30pm for a special AdventureConnect hosted by the Adventure Travel Conservation Fund (ATCF). This will be an opportunity for retailers, gear brands, and industry partners to come together and learn about a newly launched non-profit for the adventure travel industry.

During the event, representatives from the ATCF’s Adventure Leader organizations–Adventure Travel Trade Association, Eagle Creek, ExOfficio, REI Adventures, and UnCruise Adventures–will share why they believe this is an important step for the adventure travel industry.

Soraya Shattuck, ATCF Executive Director, and Steve Barker, the ATCF Board Chair, will also share a few words about the development and exciting progress to expect in 2017, the relationship with The Conservation Alliance, and why this new non-profit matters to the outdoor industry.

The ATCF will sponsor a drink for the first 50 attendees, and there will be an opportunity to win travel gear prizes from Eagle Creek and ExOfficio.
