What if I need to cancel or transfer my registration to a co-worker?

Please see ATTA’s Refund Policy page for details about cancellation or transfer information.

Will there be a MARKETPLACE?

Yes! By popular demand, we have added a Marketplace session to AdventureELEVATE North America. Tour operators and media will have the opportunity to connect with suppliers from all around the world in a series of pre-scheduled, one-on-one meetings.

In addition to the Marketplace, we will continue to have our popular D.N.A. (Disruptive Networking Adventure) event that will give all delegates time to network and meet during a late afternoon cocktail event with creative incentives to spur conversation. The ATTA Compass app will also allow you to schedule meetings in advance with other delegates during available networking time.

Will I connect with the media?

Connections with the media are a key benefit to attending AdventureELEVATE. Delegates have the opportunity to meet our official media delegates throughout the event and specifically at MediaConnect (with timed, impromptu meetings) and Marketplace (timed, pre-scheduled meetings). A diverse group of nearly two dozen media representatives will be in attendance, seeking inspiration and story ideas from you. Your success in connecting with the journalists, editors, influencers and bloggers depends on your preparation and research about who they are and what they are looking for, so be sure to do your homework!

What will I experience?

A like-minded group of adventure travel industry professionals will attend and be eager to learn and meet new colleagues. At ATTA events you can expect a warm and eager welcome and enthusiastic individuals looking to discuss business challenges and opportunities.
