Adventure Travel World Summit

Every year, representatives from the adventure travel industry come together at the Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS) to talk shop, get inspired and enjoy a decidedly adventurous destination anywhere in the world. Produced by the Adventure Travel Trade Association, the Summit is for tour operators, adventure travel writers and influencers, tourism boards and industry partners. More than just a conference, the Summit is a global gathering of an industry that works hard and plays hard, offering deep-dive educational content, big name keynote speakers and endless networking opportunities – both structured and off-site — including a Tour Operator MARKETPLACE with a globally diverse group of businesses and destinations and a MediaConnect session where delegates can pitch story ideas to over 40 international travel writers and editors.

Feedback from ATWS Attendees

If there's one event I look forward to the most each year it's the ATWS. The ability to network, share, learn and laugh with so many brilliant minds in the adventure travel space makes this a 'must attend' event.”

Over the last several years, I've made attending the ATWS a must. The host destinations and adventures are first-class, the panels are amazing tools for professional development and the connections I make with industry innovators are invaluable. It's the most important conference I attend.”
