New adventures and new partners from around the globe, found at the Marketplace by you.

Jim Johnson

“First, there’s no other trade show marketplace I’ve experienced that buzzes with the energy I always find at the ATWS Tour Operator Marketplace. In some ways, it’s the floor of New York Stock Exchange, a Moroccan bazaar, and a family reunion (the good kind) blended into one very productive setting. Second, in the past, I had to spend weeks traveling the globe to meet current and potential bike tour partners. ATWS Tour Operator Marketplace probably removes two to three weeks from my travel schedule– or at least lets me spend more of my travel schedule on bikes rather than in planes.”

Peter Grubb

ROW Adventures

“Marketplace has provided a rich opportunity to network with both suppliers and operators from around the world. I’ve made several valuable connections at these over the past few years. This has led to our pilot hiking program on the Peaks of the Balkans Trail, which in turn has led to the development of several itineraries with several local operators.”

Kurt Kutay

Wildland Adventures

“ATWS Marketplace is the diamond in the rough of travel trade shows. It’s just the right amount of time for trade business and at a more personal scale. As a buyer, every year I see more suppliers I can reconnect with who are part our Wildland Adventures family of ground operators. And, I always look forward to discovering newer, smaller, innovative adventure outfitters and community-based initiatives offering fresh new experiences that you just don’t find at the other big global trade events (because those events are too expensive, and also because ATTA awards grants to a few small, upstart suppliers who could not otherwise afford to attend any show). “

Tour Operator Suppliers

The Marketplace is sold out of Supplier Tables. If you would like, you can add yourself to the Tour Operator Marketplace Waitlist; due to cancellations or additional tables opening up those on the waitlist will be contacted to fill any released tables. As a reminder, your company must be a current ATTA Member and an inbound tour operator or accommodation specializing in adventure travel to secure a Supplier table.

The Marketplace is a popular feature of the Summit and sells out very quickly due to the limitations in size of the venue. The Marketplace, however, is not mandatory since most delegates consider the Summit successful without participating in the formal Marketplace. Registered delegates use the networking website Summit Connections for pre-event networking, knowledge-sharing and to schedule appointments during the many available networking times during the Summit.
