The Adventure Travel Trade Association, perhaps the most important business organization in adventure tourism, will be having its annual conference in Chiapas, Mexico, this coming October.
Speakers will include founder of GAP Adventure and Planeterra; Tensie Whelan, president of the Rainforest Alliance; and Bill Richardson, former Governor of New Mexico: “Throughout my travels in the effort of diplomacy worldwide, it has become clear that connecting on a basis of a sense of place can be a lynchpin for creating peace,” explains Richardson. “Understanding of local cultural heritage and possessing a sense of adventure is paramount.”
