Why the Travel Industry Needs Arival.
- The global marketplace for in-destination experiences is big: $180+ billion in traveller spend worldwide. It’s travel’s third-largest sector, and the fastest growing
- Technology is bringing rapid change. Many innovative startups are bringing affordable, modern reservations and distribution tech to tens of thousands of suppliers. They are laying the foundation for what will be huge growth for online and mobile commerce
- Mobile is transforming how travelers decide what to do when they get there. The old days and old ways of ticket offices, wholesalers, and brochures just doesn’t cut it
- There is no event that meets the needs of the thousands of small and medium size businesses that serve the traveler in-destination. Sightseeing tours, attractions, activities – these are not airlines or hotels. They face very distinct challenges to marketing, distribution, technology, fulfilment, and more.
Arival is dedicated to advancing the business of creating amazing in-destination experiences through inspiration, education, business development and community. The Arival program focuses on what matters most to the modern provider of tours, activities and attractions: technology, marketing, product innovation, business development, distribution, and more.
Our promise to attendees is a program that matters to your business, and an event that assembles our industry’s brightest minds, serves its needs and celebrates its impact.
