New adventures and new partners from around the globe, found at the Marketplace by you.
Relationships matter, which is why meeting your potential partners in person is essential. For 2021, Marketplace will be more intimate.
Let the ATTA help you review and find potential partners to you via prescheduled appointments at Marketplace. You pick your top meetings from among the 80-100 suppliers, accommodations, and destinations, suppliers pick theirs, and through a proprietary matchmaking algorithm your meetings schedule is created and sent to you. After years of Marketplace events, we have fine tuned our formula of meetings and helped forge hundreds of new, creative partnerships.
We invite Outbound Tour Operators, Wholesalers & Specialty Travel Advisors to gain access to exclusive one-on-one meetings with inbound tour operators, accommodations and destinations from around the world.

The Marketplace is a popular feature of the Summit and sells out very quickly due to the limitations in size of the venue. The Marketplace, however, is not mandatory since most delegates consider the Summit successful without participating in the formal Marketplace. Registered delegates use the networking website Summit Connections for pre-event networking, knowledge-sharing and to schedule appointments during the many available networking times during the Summit. New this year is Meet Me Here Lounge, a dedicated meeting area for any meetings happening outside of the Marketplace throughout the event.
