ATTA provides a range of information relevant to the adventure travel community through its website, publications, and events. Beginning in March 2016, the ATTA is accepting submissions from thought leaders and researchers who are willing to share leading edge thinking, innovations and information on adventure travel topics with their peers in the adventure community.
ATTA believes that sharing research throughout the community has many benefits – for the researcher, the sponsoring organization, the tourism community, and the traveling public. In addition, knowledge sharing may encourage connection and collaboration between researchers, which could result in important new findings for our field.
If you are an academic, consultant, or business with market research, evidence which speaks to the impact of adventure travel in communities and for the environment or wildlife, best practices research with respect to adventure tourism management, marketing, product development, or safety and risk management, please consider sharing your work with the adventure community. Other topics relevant to the field, but not mentioned here are also welcome and will be given full consideration.
ATTA will promote and make available all accepted submissions via a new Adventure Travel Research Hub on the adventuretravel.biz website. Credible research on all topics relevant to the field is welcome, and contributors are encouraged to review the content submission guidelines below.
It is hoped that the publicly available Adventure Travel Research Hub will provide exposure and support to individuals and organizations conducting credible research relevant to the industry, and, by bringing this material to a wider audience, enable those working in adventure to better build upon the work of others.
