Frequently Asked Questions


In order to protect delegates and the community of Eugene, Oregon from COVID-19, ATTA requires that all AdventureELEVATE delegates be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Delegates will need to show proof of vaccination at the on-site check-in before receiving an event badge.

Do I need to get a booster shot before AdventureELEVATE?

At this time booster shots are not required, but we highly recommend delegates get any boosters as soon as they are eligible based on their last vaccination, age, or state, region, and country requirements. Staying up to date with vaccinations and boosters provides the best protection against COVID-19.

What vaccines are accepted?

Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines and those on the WHO Emergency Use Listing are accepted at this time.


Can I show proof of recovery from COVID-19 instead of proof of vaccination to attend the event?

No. At this time, we require proof of vaccination to attend AdventureELEVATE.

For those traveling from outside the United States, please review the most up-to-date air travel requirements for entry into the United States. Different countries have different definitions for fully vaccinated (i.e. the United States does not recognize proof of recovery from COVID-19 as a form of vaccination), so please confirm that you meet the requirements to avoid any travel complications.

Is the event held outside or inside?

AdventureELEVATE will be held primarily inside, with a few sessions and networking taking place outside. You should expect to be inside during keynotes and breakout sessions while  several roundtables will be outside, unless it is raining. Lunch will be inside, however several tables will be available outside for those who prefer that option.

Will the event be socially distanced?

We will space the event out as much as possible and allow options that address individual comfort levels. Please respect the space that your fellow delegates may need. We will provide a color-coded system at registration so that your badge displays your comfort level: red for no physical greetings, yellow for limited contact such as elbow and fist bumps, and green for hugs or other physical greetings for those who are more comfortable with closer contact.

What if a delegate feels sick during the event?

If any delegate has shown signs of COVID-19 symptoms they will be asked to get tested immediately and remain in their hotel room or accommodation until a negative test result is received.

Rapid antigen & PCR testing is located at various locations around Eugene. The most convenient is less than 1 minute walk from The Graduate hotel at the Hult Center. They are open 9am-5pm M-F and appointments can be booked online.

Will ATTA team, hotel staff, and event venue staff be vaccinated?

Hotel or event venue staff will be under the control of and guidance of their employer. ATTA will request that the hotel/event staff wear masks. ATTA event staff will be vaccinated and will follow the same protocols as event attendees.

What if I am not vaccinated?

Please contact us so we can address options including whether your event ticket can be transferred to another team member at your company.

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

Will there be a MARKETPLACE?

Instead of set MARKETPLACE appointments, we offer AdventureExchange. Tour operators, travel advisors, media, destination representatives and industry professionals working in all other capacities within adventure travel will have the opportunity to connect with each other during AdventureExchange, a series of pre-scheduled, one-on-one meetings.

In addition to AdventureExchange will we 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. In addition, the ATTA Event app will allow you to schedule meetings in advance with other delegates during available networking time.

Will I connect with media?

Connections with 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 impromptu timed meetings) and AdventureExchange (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!
