Adventure Travel Trade Association
Established in 1990, the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) serves over 1000 members in over 100 countries worldwide. Members predominantly include tour operators, tourism boards, specialty agents and accommodations with a vested interest in the sustainable development of adventure tourism. The ATTA delivers solutions and connections that propel members towards their business goals and the industry toward a responsible and profitable future.
The travel and tourism industry is the world’s largest commercial service sectors, employing 1 in every 11 people on Earth (as of 2015). As such, the industry has a significant impact on the economic well being of people and the environment. Adventure tourism, dominated as it is by small businesses working in rural areas and wilderness environments, is even more dependent than other forms of tourism on human and nature capital, and views the protection and promotion of these resources as central to its continued success.
