Adventure Travel Networking (ATN) has announced the programme for its virtual marketplace and conference next month.
Running from 4-5 February (marketplace followed by conference), the event, for which TTG Media is trade media partner and Visit Rwanda is headline sponsor, is focused on one of the fastest-growing sectors in the travel industry.
It brings together UK adventure tour operators, tourist boards, experiential travel and unique accommodation providers, and influential industry speakers.
Pru Goudie, founder of ATN, said: "The support from the trade and uptake from both exhibitors and buyers for the supplier/buyer marketplace has been overwhelming, given the current climate.
"Tourist boards will be pivotal in the recovery of tourism during 2021/22 as they attract the adventure traveller back to their countries with confidence."
She added: “We are delighted to announce Visit Rwanda as headline sponsor of and we are super excited to have them involved with our event.”
The conference agenda will see a combination of speakers and panel sessions, live audience polls and Q&As.
Under the theme Adventure Travel Networking #Reset, programme topics will include:
"Despite the challenges the trade is constantly having to navigate, there is clear determination amongst the adventure travel community to look to the future and find a way through," Goudie added.
"The adventure travel community is renowned for sharing information and concerns which makes it an incredibly supportive sector of the industry.
"So when we come together on the 5 February we will be looking for the opportunities to reset and adventure forward."
