Now in its fourth year, the International Adventure Conference brings together a delegation of influential academic researchers and leading industry practitioners from across the world, to learn about and debate burning issues in adventure tourism and outdoor recreation, from marketing and entrepreneurship to philosophical issues.
The last conference held in Sogndal, Norway, attracted delegates from across 26 countries.
For the 2015 conference, the Adventure Tourism Research Association (ATRA) is delighted to be in partnership with the Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam University to host the event in Sheffield, UK.
This year's event will examine the Edge of Adventure; the flight from the urban industrial, where we have the 24/7 connectivity of mobile communications, to the nearby adventure playgrounds located in natural landscapes.
The programme will comprise presentations on a range of different adventure themes. There will also be workshops run by VisitEngland, the Institute for Outdoor Learning, the British Standards Institute, the Royal Geographical Society and the Peak District National Park Authority amongst others.
Keynote speakers announced so far include:
The International Adventure Conference offers a fantastic platform for adventure tourism and recreation businesses to showcase their products and services in front of an international delegation. We are delighted that Mountain Equipment have already committed to the event as the 2015 Headline Sponsor.
