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.
Let the ATTA help you review and find potential partners to you via pre-scheduled appointments at Marketplace. You pick your top meetings from among the 100 suppliers and accommodations, 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.

What They Say…
“Marketplace has provided a rich opportunity to network with both suppliers and operators from around the world. I’ve made several valuable connections at these over the past few years. This has led to our pilot hiking program on the Peaks of the Balkans Trail, which in turn has led to the development of several itineraries with several local operators.” – Peter Grubb, ROW Adventures
“ATWS Marketplace is the diamond in the rough of travel trade shows. It’s just the right amount of time for trade business and at a more personal scale. As a buyer, every year I see more suppliers I can reconnect with who are part of our Wildland Adventures family of ground operators. And, I always look forward to discovering newer, smaller, innovative adventure outfitters and community-based initiatives offering fresh new experiences that you just don’t find at the other big global trade events (because those events are too expensive, and also because ATTA awards grants to a few small, upstart suppliers who could not otherwise afford to attend any show).” – Kurt Kutay, Wildland Adventures
