Coeur d’Alene Idaho

Future Together

200 adventure travel industry professionals from 17 countries gathered from April 12-13 for the third AdventureELEVATE in the beautiful region of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Collaborative learning and interactive workshops allowed delegates to engage with keynote speakers and panel participants. The two days of productive, in-depth conference material were preceded by a sunny Day of Adventures in Idaho. Delegates took part in a variety of outdoor activities the state has to offer, including kayaking on Lake Coeur d’Alene, hiking, rafting the Spokane River, and cycling.

View Wrap Up

On April 12 to 13, 2017, thought-leaders and practitioners in the adventure travel industry will come together on the shores of lake Coeur d’Alene at Coeur d’Alene Resort for the third annual AdventureELEVATE. Three hundred delegates — mostly representatives of North American-based tour operators, travel advisors, media and outdoor gear companies — will dive into our theme Future Together through educational sessions, workshops, and creative networking.

The destination of Idaho fits “Future Together” due to the state’s long history as a stomping ground for pioneering people. Idaho’s spirit — a place where people have made their future on their own terms — matches the spirit of the passionate adventure travel delegates.
