Under the Patronage of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II

Find your way to the intersection of water and land, south and north, past and present, local traditions and foreign intrigue. Now in its third year, AdventureNEXT Near East 2019 promises to be both a continuation of development and a chance for fresh starts, drawing interest from returning regional representatives and enticing new delegates.

Once again, AdventureNEXT Near East pulls in the very best of the Adventure Travel Trade Association’s signature event features while refining its focus on the networking needs, destination discovery, and educational components tailored to the region. It connects international travel trade and media with suppliers from Jordan and surrounding countries, creating the ideal blend for professional opportunity. Every year, delegates meet that perfect partner, discover that untold story, and find that untapped strategy for growing their business — all against Jordan’s historic and natural backdrop.

Join us in Jordan’s coastal city Aqaba: A hotspot for water sports and the gateway to land-based adventures. A place of culture, community, and cuisine. The connection between the south and north ends of the Jordan Trail. And a destination where returning and new delegates will meet once again for AdventureNEXT Near East.


Embracing the idea of forging meaningful connections at the heart of successful businesses, the Marketplace will allow delegates to meet with potential partners at two dozen pre-scheduled meetings over the course of two days.


As part of AdventureNEXT all delegates are welcomed on multi-day adventures within the region for first-hand, rich adventure travel experiences. The trips are available to most members for a nominal fee while a limited number of buyers and media are eligible for complimentary experiences. More information will be available soon.


AdventureNEXT keynote speakers and breakout sessions will focus on industry issues and business practices driving successful adventure travel in the Near East and around the world.
