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.
Who should register to attend AdventureELEVATE?
There’s room for 250 delegates to attend the AdventureELEVATE. With its focus on topics and trends for the North American travel trade, a mix of North American-based tour operators and travel advisors, media, industry partners, as well as international tourism boards and destination management companies attend AdventureELEVATE. ATTA members receive a registration discount, but non-member adventure travel industry colleagues are invited to apply. Register Now.
Will there be a MARKETPLACE?
Instead of set MARKETPLACE appointments, we offer AdventureExchange. Tour operators, travel advisors, media, destination representatives and industry professionals working in all other capacities within adventure travel will have the opportunity to connect with each other during AdventureExchange, a series of pre-scheduled, one-on-one meetings.
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!
What will I experience?
A like-minded group of adventure travel industry professionals will attend and be eager to learn and meet new colleagues. At ATTA events you can expect a warm and eager welcome and enthusiastic individuals looking to discuss business challenges and opportunities.
