From 16-19 September 2019, 773 adventure travel industry professionals from 72 countries gathered for the Adventure Travel World Summit in Gothenburg, Sweden, to reconnect with the essence of adventure.
The Summit’s theme, omtanke, the Swedish word which connotes “caring” and “consideration,” challenged delegates to think critically about the way forward and reconsider the important role the adventure travel community holds within the tourism industry throughout the four-day event.
Roam through the wild, lush forest or dip your kayak paddle in one of 100,000 lakes. Pass an afternoon picking plump cloudberries or earthy mushrooms, the fresh smell of dirt clinging to the soles of your hiking boots. Feel the late summer sun warm your shoulders by day and listen to the crackling campfire once night falls. By its nature, Sweden is raw, real, and ready to welcome delegates to the Adventure Travel World Summit in 2019.
Sweden is a nation of simple pleasures, accessible experiences, and sustainable innovation — an ideal setting for 750 Summit delegates eager to build relationships within the international adventure tourism community, foster partnerships, and access cutting-edge professional development.
Of course, there’s plenty of time for play and exploration as well: During carefully curated Pre-Summit Adventures and Day of Adventures, discover the secrets of one of the world’s most sustainable tourism destinations through soft adventures and nature-focused experiences.
