Adventure Travel Trade Association members were well represented across six categories in Newsweek's Future of Travel Awards 2021. Newsweek describes the awards as highlighting "those who are creating a travel industry for the future–one that's more adaptable, sustainable, responsible, innovative, and inclusive".
The ATTA membership community believes travel, when done responsibly, safely, and respectfully, can be a catalyst for positive change for communities, the environment, wildlife, and culture. From visionaries to storytelling, tour operators to the panelists selected, it is no surprise that the adventure travel community and numerous ATTA members were recognized for their leadership and contributions to the future of travel.
