The ATTA is experiencing unprecedented sponsor demand for the 2011 Adventure Travel World Summit. All major Summit sponsorship opportunities are spoken for in 2011, with only a few mid- to small-sized sponsorships remaining.
“We’re seeing more sponsor interest than in any prior year, which is certainly a good challenge to have,” said ATTA Vice President of Business Development Chris Chesak. “There are just a few Summit sponsorship opportunities available, but we’re also open to entertaining new, distinctive and creative sponsorship concepts that complement our strong showing of return sponsors, whether they are sponsorships for the Summit, or year-round support of the growing ATTA community.”
Returning sponsors will include Eddie Bauer, Chiapas CVB, AFAR magazine, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Norway, Quebec, Scotland, Switzerland and Jordan. The ATTA continues discussion with several new destinations about sponsorship, including several from Africa and Eastern Europe, as well as other outdoor industry gear brands.
An ATTA sponsorship not only supports the sponsor’s business and organizational brand development, but provides direct support of the Summit, helping fuel energy and entertainment, featured speakers and colorful execution of each annual Summit, factors which help distinguish the adventure travel community’s annual gathering from other more traditional conferences.
