Join us at the 2018 New York Times Travel Show (NYTTS) on January 26th from 5-7 pm for an AdventureConnect social event immediately following the Focus on Adventure: North American Adventure Travelers educational session with ATTA’s Strategic Director of North America, Russell Walters and ATTA President Business Services + Events, Casey Hanisko. In special partnership with the show organizers and Destination Canada, the ATTA invites all travel professionals with an interest in adventure, nature and cultural tourism to gather in this casual networking atmosphere. This is typically one of our most well-attended AdventureConnect gatherings of the year and provides a great space for productive and casual networking. Attendees will also have the opportunity to win door prizes. The Focus on Adventure session, entitled "North American Adventure Travelers: Seeking Personal Growth, New Destinations and Immersive Culture" with Casey and Russell will compare survey results from a recent benchmark study against those from a similar study conducted in 2006. The session will dive into what’s changed and what’s stayed the same in the Adventure Travel over the past ten years and will conclude by exploring ideas about what the future might hold for this exciting tourism sector with a group of special industry guests. To attend the full industry conference program including the Focus on Adventure session, ATTA Members can register for a full conference pass at a discounted rate. A free trade day exhibition pass is also available (for trade only), granting access to the AdventureConnect and trade exhibition only, without access to the Focus on Adventure session.
As a part of the ATTA’s overarching mission to serve as the hub and facilitator for responsible, profitable adventure travel businesses, destinations and media, AdventureConnect events offer our vibrant communities a chance to connect, network and grow. These events are hosted locally in destinations or conferences where the adventure travel community naturally gathers. AdventureConnects range from casual networking to group outings to structured peer-to-peer or educational roundtables. Access the full AdventureConnect event calendar for events near you.
