AdventureELEVATE: Virtual 2020

to

Get ready, we're bringing the experience to you!


Let’s face it, this year caught us all off guard. It’s been rough for tourism, but we can regroup as a team and propel our industry to new levels. Let’s cut the business buzzspeak and get back to the basics we in the adventure industry know so well, so we can move forward together smarter than ever. We’re a community of entrepreneurs, moonshot dreamers, storytellers, and above all, survivors. 2020 has introduced incredible challenges along with rare opportunities, and this year’s Springboard theme will provide inspiration and tools to help your business launch into the next phase of adventure travel.

Traditionally AdventureELEVATE is an annual North America-based two-day intensive educational and networking conference that brings together thought-leaders and practitioners for inspiration, education, and insights into the trends that shape our industry year-round. For AdventureELEVATE 2020 the ATTA is pushing reset and bringing in a new vibe; the presentations and conversations you’ll find are geared toward moving the industry forward with a focus on the positive. We invite you to join familiar faces in a virtual venue to listen, share, and build together, and Springboard into the future.

  • 34+ Hours Available for Networking
