The Media Application is now closed. Applications are currently being reviewed and final selections will be made shortly.
AdventureELEVATE gives selected official media delegates the opportunity to discover new destinations, products, and stories through interactive workshops, inspiring plenary discussions, and networking opportunities focused around the evolving trends of the North American adventure travel market, with plenty of time for fresh air and adventure.
In the interest of maintaining a healthy dynamic of diverse business interests in the final event delegation, there are a limited number of official media delegate spots at AdventureELEVATE.
If selected, the entire trip length will vary in duration up to six days prior to the event depending on which Pre-Adventure options (4-5 days in length – hosted media are required to participate in one) plus the travel time from your origin city. The event itself is November 16-18, 2021, with return departures on November 19, 2021.
The ATTA and our host destination are seeking to host an approximate total of up to 20 official media delegates with a primarily North American audience. Only U.S. and Canada-based media should apply. Applications will be considered and reviewed with the destination partner, with the goal to have a variety of qualified media representing the markets listed above who specialize in adventure and sustainable travel stories, including:
Publishers, advertising sales representatives, personal or hobby bloggers, PR agency representatives, marketing agencies/content developers, and film/video producers are not eligible to apply as an official media delegate. Anyone with an interest in the North American adventure travel industry may pay to attend as a regular event delegate.
Opening session passes may be available for local television, radio or newspaper representatives to access designated sessions during the event. Contact [email protected].
All official media delegates are expected to be “working media” meaning whether a freelance journalist, magazine editor, photojournalist, or professional blogger and influencer, you will be actively looking for ways to cover the destination where the event takes place, the adventure travel industry, and attending delegate’s destinations and products.
In addition, all hosted official media delegates are:
Hosted official media delegates receive: complimentary event registration, single accommodations during the event, economy round-trip air, ground transfers, and a multi-day Pre-Adventure with a local tour operator. Hosted media are required to participate in one of the Pre-Adventures (3-5 days in length) and a Day of Adventure (Nov 16), and are expected to be researching the experience for potential story coverage, and active on social media using the assigned hashtags. We will expect resulting publications, and track all media results from our events.
