As the adventure community gathers in Maine for AdventureELEVATE 2023, the theme of Steadfast unites us in the spirit of moving forward with conviction driven by purpose, optimism and pragmatism. Maine culture is as spirited and unpretentious as the land and seascapes are alluring and wild. Leaders gathering at this event are dedicated to the art of adventure; they act wholeheartedly, collaborate intentionally, and strive to deliver experiences that protect natural and cultural capital and create shared economic value.
