Tour operators, media, destinations and industry professionals working in all other capacities within adventure travel will have the opportunity to connect with other delegates during the AdventureExchange, your best way to access pre-scheduled, one-on-one meetings at AdventureELEVATE.
The AdventureExchange takes the best parts of ATTA’s popular Marketplace and MediaConnect events. It is a dedicated networking session for all delegates — creative partnerships come from creative thinkers and needn’t fit a predefined formula: listen to a new product idea, share common challenges and solutions with colleagues, find a unique take on your company’s story and share it with the attending media — the opportunities are only limited by the extent of your imagination.
How It Works
All registered delegates get access to our event networking website. First, complete your profile so others know who you are, and upload a photo so they will recognize you in person. Next, browse the attending delegate list — filter by company type, geography or business interests.
Once you have identified someone you’d like to connect with, press the button to request a meeting and drag to prioritize. Don’t be concerned about overbooking your schedule, since our meeting algorithm will create your schedule based on the mutual priority of each potential meeting.
On the day of AdventureExchange, your schedule will be available on the ATTA event app and website. Simply find the table number for each meeting and start networking. Each meeting is 12 minutes long. And community tables will be available for any impromptu meetings.
The event networking website will open in winter 2020, and AdventureExchange is included in ticket price. Register now to be among the first to be able to request meetings.
