AdventureNEXT Peru

Media Application Now Closed

Media applications closed on 17 September 2023.


This application closed 17 September 2023. Applications will be reviewed and final selections made in early October 2023. 

AdventureNEXT gives attending media the opportunity to discover the unique natural and cultural resources and activities in a specific destination. Selected official media delegates will learn about the destination and find inspiration through immersive multi-day adventure tours, connections with local suppliers during Marketplace, and learning about the value and development of adventure travel through speakers and workshops at the event.

The final selected hosted official media delegates will receive complimentary event registration, accommodations during the event, economy round-trip air, airport transfers, and a Pre-Adventure tour at no cost. Hosted media delegates are required to participate in a multi-day Pre-Adventure tour. 


If selected, the entire trip length will vary in duration from 8-9 days total, depending on the selection of Pre-Adventure tours (5-6 days in length) plus the travel time from your origin city. Tour options and booking will be made after media selections and registrations are complete. The event itself is 5-7 December, with return departures on 8 December. Selected media are required to attend the duration of the event, no early departures


The ATTA and our hosts are seeking five (5) hosted media delegates and are considering media based in the United States and Canada who have an active interest in creating and publishing content about adventure and sustainable travel in Perú and whose outlets reach U.S. and Canadian audiences. There also will be some consideration for British media reaching a UK audience. 

Applications will be considered and reviewed with the destination partner, with the goal to host a diverse group of media who specialize in adventure and sustainable travel stories, including:

    • Freelance Journalists with a proven record of placing articles in mainstream lifestyle outlets or verticals focusing on travel, outdoor adventure, fitness, culture, or environment/sustainability with national and global reach (print and digital).
    • Magazine, Newspaper, or Digital Staff Writers & Editors from mainstream lifestyle outlets and/or vertical outlets focusing on travel, outdoor adventure, culture or environment/sustainability with national and global reach. 
    • Travel Content Creators (Influencers/Bloggers) with evidence of regular, current editorial content (i.e. non-sponsored posts) related to adventure travel, outdoor activity, culture, or environmental/sustainability issues with a large, dedicated, and engaged following interested in adventure travel-related content (limited spots).
    • Broadcast Journalists & Producers whose content is broadcast on TV, radio, or podcast and is related to the adventure travel or outdoor industry (this event is not an ideal fit for strictly on-camera talent due to very limited filming opportunities).

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.


Official Media delegates are expected to be “working media” meaning whether a freelance journalist, editor, or travel content creator, you will be actively looking for ways to cover the host destination, the adventure travel industry, and attending delegate’s destinations and products.

In addition, all official media delegates are:

    • Required to attend the Marketplace session during the event, designed to give you more story ideas and connections.
    • Expected to attend the FULL event (all conference days).
    • Expected to publish stories and content about your experience on adventures. 
    • Obtain your own travel insurance policy for the trip.


    • Final selections will be made from the pool of applications received.
    • All applications will be considered, reviewed, and selected with the destination partner.
    • A cross-set of criteria is used in the application evaluation and selection process to curate a final diverse selection of media representing the specific countries listed above and a variety of narratives, outlets, and topics related to adventure travel. 
    • Due to the limited number of official media delegate spots and the large quantity of applications typically received, not all qualified applications will be selected.
    • You will receive an email from ATTA informing you of the status of your application.
