We encourage ATTA adventure media members to pitch story ideas for the following sections:

Adventure Means Business: Trends and tips about the business side of adventure. We’re looking for expertly written how-to articles especially about social media, marketing, and business strategies.

The Long View: A deeper look into industry-wide trends. We’re looking for big trends with several specific examples from operators and destinations, travel agents, or other members of the adventure travel community.

From the Top: Interviews with executives, managers, and visionaries in the adventure travel, outdoor, or conservation worlds. We can suggest interview subjects.
