business and professional development, education and intensive interaction
among the who’s who of adventure travel are event cornerstones.For many of the 300
delegates already registered for this year’s Summit, success will be
measured in part by the ability to share their own unique business situations:
the sharing of individual experiences in a manner that allows them to gain
feedback from experts and fellow delegates who can respond directly to their
real-world situation and offer advice, insights and solutions.
new programs - Meeting of the Minds, Collaborative Learning, and Meet the Press – will provide
delegates the chance to get directly involved rather than rely exclusively on
traditional, conference speaker/panelist programs. Instead, each Summit programs’
success hinges directly upon delegate input, ideas and sharing of real-world
background on the Summit agenda, special activities, a list of pre-registered
delegates, attending press, and information about the growing list of Summit
