Rethinking your strategy is imperative to address how to be resilient and ready with an eye to a sustainable future.
The ATTA is actively developing new, innovative products to help your destination move forward with recovery efforts. Research, education, and training (for both destination professionals and their regional suppliers), new product development for the post covid-19 traveler, marketing and engagement strategies to reach both the trade and the end consumer, as well as virtual events are some of the opportunities that can help form and materialize your destination’s strategy.
Additionally, at ATTA’s core is community and relationship building around the world. The ATTA has continued its efforts in connecting destinations and suppliers with buyers and media around the globe virtually, and will in-person when it is safe to do so, to ensure there is no interruption in the relationships we have all worked to develop for years, if not decades.
We are open and flexible to brainstorm and work together to keep the industry moving forward. Whether you are looking for solutions in the next three months, or a three year strategic plan, your ATTA regional director can customize an actionable plan for your destination to stay resilient.
The ATTA has offered advisory programs for destinations around the world, to help grow visitation to a destination through the development of deep relationships and partnerships, education, advisory on new product development, and marketing opportunities. Building off of the knowledge that we have acquired through this work, we offer an array of advisory services tailored to your destination’s needs during this unprecedented time and beyond.
An advisory panel of experts will help your destination inform your strategy on a topic (or topics) of choice (for example regional strategies, local market and product development, etc.), and ATTA will curate these experts and facilitate the group through the full length of the program (from half a day all the way to a 12 month commitment). Written reports, research, and analysis may be added on.
Develop deep relationships and partnerships with receptive operators, agents, and media with conversion potential. Learn, grow, innovate and market your products through an ATTA led 1-2 year private advocacy group.
A curated ATTA group of experts will provide your destination with guidance and a roadmap for sustained industry development. This assessment FAM will connect high value buyers and media interested in new markets with leaders in the destination and be customized to the specific areas of assessment your destination needs (ie safety, guide service, accommodations, etc).
