What if I need to cancel or transfer my registration to a co-worker?
Event Cancellation or Changes by ATTA The Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) reserves the right to cancel, postpone, or reschedule in its sole discretion an event due to low registrations. If ATTA voluntarily cancels an event due to low registrations, delegates will be offered a full or partial refund. If ATTA postpones or reschedules an event due to low registrations, ATTA in its sole discretion will 1) provide an account credit, or 2) transfer registration to the same or similar event at a future date. Note that this cancellation and refund policy does not apply to cancellation due to Force Majeure.
ATTA also has the right to postpone, suspend, cancel, or reschedule an event at any time, in its sole discretion in the event of Force Majeure and 1) provide an account credit, or 2) transfer registration to the same or similar event at a future date. No refunds, whether partial or full, will be made if ATTA postpones, suspends, cancels or reschedules an event because of Force Majeure.
Event Registration Cancellation or Transfer by Delegate:
Co-Worker Transfer Policy: Registered delegates may transfer their event registration to a co-worker at no charge if an official transfer request form has been submitted 61 or more days before the event. Within 60 days of the event, ATTA may charge a co-worker transfer fee ($150 for the Summit and $75 for all other events).
Cancellation by Delegate Policy: While the ATTA strongly encourages delegates to first consider transferring their registration to a co-worker, delegates may elect to cancel their registration and receive an account credit for the amount of the registration fees paid. Cancellation requests submitted up to 61 days before the Summit via our official cancellation request form will receive account credit equal to the full amount paid. If the cancellation is received within 60 days of the event, the account credit will be given for the original amount paid less a cancellation fee ($250 for the Summit and $125 for all other events). Account credits will be available for future purchases with the ATTA.
Refund Request by Delegate Policy: No refunds will be given within 120 days before the Summit; please plan accordingly. Full refunds are available if requested 121 days or more before the Summit provided that there is not a volume of similar refund requests that it would make it financially detrimental for ATTA to provide refunds as ATTA determines in its sole discretion. In this situation, ATTA will provide an account credit or transfer registration to the same or similar event at a future date. Cancellations will be accepted by completing an official cancellation request form.
Event Registration Cancellation May Change by Event Each ATTA event may have different transfer/refund/cancellation policies. You may see specific event transfer/refund/cancellation policies on each event’s registration page – which supersedes transfer/refund/cancellation policies on this page.

What is AdventureELEVATE?
AdventureELEVATE is a business-to-business conference focused on the adventure travel industry. A majority of the attendees will come from organizations, destinations, and publications with a vested interest in the North American market, and the educational content is designed for North American business needs and trends. Inspirational keynotes, the AdventureExchange marketplace-style session, networking, and MediaConnect sessions are beneficial to delegates from around the world.

There’s room for 250 delegates to attend the AdventureELEVATE.

Will there be a MARKETPLACE?
Instead of set MARKETPLACE appointments, we offer AdventureExchange.

In addition to AdventureExchange will we continue to have our popular D.N.A. (Disruptive Networking Adventure) event that will give all delegates time to network and meet during a late afternoon cocktail event with creative incentives to spur conversation. In addition, the ATTA Event app will allow you to schedule meetings in advance with other delegates during available networking time.
Will I connect with media?
Connections with media are a key benefit to attending AdventureELEVATE. Delegates have the opportunity to meet our official media delegates throughout the event and specifically at MediaConnect (with impromptu timed meetings) and AdventureExchange (pre-scheduled meetings). A diverse group of nearly two dozen media representatives will be in attendance, seeking inspiration and story ideas from you. Your success in connecting with the journalists, editors, influencers and bloggers depends on your preparation and research about who they are and what they are looking for, so be sure to do your homework!
